Verdict

A competitive enough opener. The booking of Paul Townend for Jet Setting Jim on his hurdles debut looks significant while Theflyingbee looks good enough to get involved with normal improvement. A chance is taken with BREAK THE BOUNDARY, who divided two highly rated chasers in a Cork hunter chase on Monday and looks promising. [Justin O’Hanlon]
