Verdict

A very low-level bumper in which Noel Meade's newcomer WES HARDIN, the mount of Nina Carberry, can make a successful debut. The son of Beneficial is the first foal of a bumper winner and won't need to be a world-beater here. Stuart Crawford always does well here and Twentytwo's Taken, a close relative of three winners, wouldn't be a shock winner on her racecourse debut. Texas Tea has shown a bit of potential and could be best of those with experience, though recent Ballingarry points winner Draycott Place undoubtedly has more to offer.
