Verdict

Denis Hogan keeps popping the winners in and WINTER LION looks another money-spinner for the yard. Formerly with John Oxx, he showed his best form to date when sent over 2m1f at Killarney where he only weakened close home so this trip should prove ideal. Hunting Tower has had several trainers and Jimmy Lambe has got him back from Tim Vaughan. The ten-year-old returns to Ireland on a fair mark and should soon be adding to his winning tally. Winning bumper Dat's The Plan makes his handicap debut under a big weight and Right Up My Street hasn't raced beyond 1m5f so stamina has to be taken on trust. Carpet Elegance has no problems with the trip having landed a handicap hurdle at Down Royal on fast ground in May.
