In depth

Verdict

ART OF SILENCE won a Ballinrobe bumper in May but didn't get far when well supported for his hurdling debut at Listowel last week. He can make amends though Single Edition, who won a Down Royal bumper from a subsequent dual winner, made a reasonable start over timber at Sligo then found 2m4f too far on a return visit. Six Ace has only shown moderate form in bumpers and Gordon Elliott looks to have a better chance with Wee Willie Nail, who has been racing over further but looks certain to get into contention. Catena Zapata has won twice at Dundalk and, though not having a jumping pedigree, his trainer will get the best from him.
