Verdict

Thoonavolla has been in decent form over hurdles and was running over fences between the flags last year but it will be a surprise if he's good enough to beat VAXALCO (NAP) if Jim Culloty's five-year-old repeats the form of his debut fourth at Galway. The Cub ran his best race so far over fences at Limerick last month but is already a nine-year-old and more interesting is Gray Hession, who will have needed his comeback and will appreciate the longer trip. Darwins Theory was only beaten half-a-length by Mighty Whitey at Downpatrick in June but never figured in a handicap at Killarney subsequently.
