Verdict

A cracking race in prospect but FELIX YONGER has always looked to have the potential to go all the way to the top and the winning bumper and hurdler made a very bright start when beating subsequent winner White Star Line on his chasing bow at Punchestown in May. Road To Riches was well beaten when tackling Grade 1 events at Aintree and Punchestown over hurdles but had earlier landed a Grade 3 and has all the attributes to make a smart chaser. Golden Wonder had Darroun four lengths behind when they occupied the places behind Owega Star here last month and both have the scope for further improvement. Clar Na Mionn has been placed in two Grade 3s recently while Rogue Angel may well have made a winning start over fences but for falling at the last at Punchestown last month.
