Verdict

There should be more to come from Clonmel maiden winner TIPPING AWAY so he gets a tentative vote in a competitive race. Listenheretomejack is an obvious danger after his recent course success, while the booking of Rachael Blackmore for Youngnedofthehill suggests this veteran is expected to go well on back of a decent run at the Punchestown Festival.
