Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has much bigger fish to fry over the weekend but he can have some fun over the winter with CARRIGANOG, who was a very impressive winner of a Clonmel maiden and looks destined for better things. Theatre Mill had shown little in his first two starts over timber but it was a different matter at Fairyhouse on his return from a break where he won convincingly. Araku Valley went to Clonmel for his third start over hurdles and produced a real shock. There was no fluke about the victory as he was eased right down and another bold bid is expected.
