Verdict

Marlos Moment has run 13 times over timber, including at a very high level early in his career, but the fact that he's still a maiden should set alarm bells ringing. Not My Idea was moderate on the Flat but made a nice hurdling debut at Clonmel and will have learned from that though the runner-up that day, Sughera, looks a big threat to all with her allowances. Milano Bay produced a good effort over timber at Wexford in July but Silver Chief ran a shocker when strongly fancied at Down Royal in August. BLACK EMPRESS has shown a little promise in bumpers but her pedigree is all about jumping and Willie Mullins will have her primed to make a winning start in her new career.
