Verdict

KNOCKMAOLE BOY was a decent sort on the Flat and his runner-up finish on jumping bow at Fairyhouse reads well enough in this context to suggest he's got leading claims of going one better. He jumped well on that occasion and should be on the premises this time. Agent Boru left his hurdling debut behind with a good showing over this C&D recently and should have more to offer while Mr Showtime is another heading the right way. Of the newcomers, any market support behind Beginningtogetup would be worth noting. 1. Knockmaole Boy 2. Agent Boru 3. Mr Showtime
