Verdict

PURPLE MOUTAIN ran too badly to be true at Leopardstown in February and is much better judged on her listed bumper win at Gowran the time before, which makes her of firm interest on this switch to hurdles. Gamin Original did too much too soon on his return to action at Ballinrobe in May and remains with potential, while Choir Practice is worth another chance to improve.
