Verdict

It's unusual to find a bumper on this card but it's a attracted a strong line-up. Aidan O'Brien's Egyptian Warrior is much better than he showed at Leopardstown though faces a tough task against useful performers. Made In Germany will have his supporters after his Navan victory while winning point-to-pointer Concordin made a very bright bumper debut behind the useful Akorakor at Fairyhouse. EBAZZIYR is bred to be a champion on the Flat so it was no surprise to see him start favourite on his debut at Gowran last month where he won with a bit in hand. There's more to come from him and he can complete the double.
