Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

BRIDES HILL very much caught the eye when nearest at the finish on her Leopardstown handicap hurdle debut a couple of months back and gets the vote here. Seangowell arrives on the back of a string of good efforts so rates an obvious danger, while Cape Islay is a possible improver now handicapping for the first time over hurdles for her leading yard.
