Verdict

This is a very moderate bumper so Willie Mullins' newcomer VALERIAN BRIDGE, whose dam produced a bumper winner with her first foal, gets the vote to make a successful start. Behana has been running well enough to be considered and wasn't beaten far at Tramore last time and Bon Chic showed a bit of promise at Wexford when last seen in May. Shouband improved at Killarney last time and had run reasonably well on this track in May so he's a possible for a place. The market should tell us more about the chances of the newcomers.
