Verdict

GREY SPIRIT and Atholl Street stand out in this novice. The latter appeals as the type to go on improving for his top yard but it is the former who boasts the stronger form, so he's given another chance to defy a double penalty, especially with the Olly Murphy yard back amongst the winners. Of the rest, Jersey Wonder is worth a second look on this switch to hurdling given his Flat ability.

  1. GREY SPIRIT (IRE)
  2. ATHOLL STREET (IRE)
  3. JERSEY WONDER (IRE)
