Verdict

FIRST TOUCH shaped well in a maiden at Sligo on his penultimate start and since landed a handicap hurdle at Roscommon so, from the same mark, he gets the nod ahead of Direct Image, who is also well treated if she can replicate her form over the smaller obstacles. Father Jed is in terrific form and unlikely to be far away.

  1. FIRST TOUCH (IRE)
