Fair Flat winner who built on previous efforts in this sphere when third of 9 at Killarney (17f) 12 days ago, finishing with running left. This is tougher but may still have more to come.

Placed in a hurdle race from three NH starts, also won a flat race in February. Third of 9 behind Varna Gold beaten 11l at 7-1 on his latest outing in a maiden hurdle race at Killarney over 2m 1f (good) earlier this month.

At The Races Verdict

The in-form Noel Meade is two-handed here, and Crassus looks the pick of the Tu Va runners. There is strong County Meath representation all told, with Tony Martin fielding Belgoprince, and Gordon Elliott Zanahiyr. Belgoprince and connections fell foul of the stewards at this venue on August 10th, whilst Zanahiyr is very interesting beginning for the Morans and Cullentra House after his Fairyhouse maiden win over a mile and a half in July. However, Galway festival scorer DARK VOYAGER could be the one. He starts off in the dual Gold Cup winning silks of Marie Donnelly, and if anything like his half-brother, A Wave Of The Sea, the Closutton three-year-old could be exciting at this game.

Timeform Verdict

DARK VOYAGER and Zanahiyr are both interesting recruits to this sphere for top stables given their exploits on the Flat this year, with narrow preference for the former, who has the size to make a hurdler and is a half-brother to classy jumper A Wave of The Sea. Crassus has an experience edge over the two and is also not dismissed.
