Verdict

Lady Of Glencoe encountered fast ground for the first time at Punchestown and beat a big field of maidens, who included Stay In My Heart and Dashing Lady who are in the opener. She gets allowances from the two recent winners and looks a real threat. Point-to-point winner Our Man Zebo made a winning debut over hurdles at Ballinrobe and is a progressive type though how he'll handle faster ground is another matter, a remark that also applies to SIZING SAHARA though it's Willie Mullins' grey who gets the nod. He looked a very smart prospect at Kilbeggan last month and with further progress guaranteed he'll take some beating. The remainder will need to find some improvement to get involved.
