Verdict

Whodoyouthink took a tumble when in the lead at Listowel after pulling up in the Galway Plate but he's very useful on his day as he showed when slamming Askanna by 17 lengths at Punchestown in May. Sweet My Lord made a winning debut over fences at Tramore but was firmly put in his place by PRIDE OF THE ARTIC and Ballyadam Brook on heavy ground at Listowel. The winner, who made all and jumped very well, loves the conditions and is taken to continue the good work though Jacksonslady looks a big threat with her allowances. She could hardly have been more impressive at Killarney on just her second start over fences and should win her share of races over the bigger obstacles.
