Verdict

Trainer Gordon Elliott appears to have found an ideal opening for his Carlotamix gelding, CURLEW HILL to get off the mark on hurdling debut in a weak looking contest. The five-year-old won a Downpatrick bumper in good style over 2m2f last month and should have too much oin the locker for the Gavin Cromwell pair, Presenting Meghan, only got as far as the first on hurdling debut earlier this week and You Say Nothing, who can improve on first start over timber at Kilbeggan this month. Grange Walk, out of his depth at the Galway festival, should not be underestimated back at this level.
