Verdict

COPS AND ROBBERS won a Newmarket maiden for Sir Michael Stoute last August and started his hurdling career in a Grade 3 over the C&D in April where he ran very well. With his yard in good form a long absence shouldn't be a problem and he should take this before going on to better things. Sizing Rio won a point-to-point at Bennetsbridge in February and will prove better than his bumper run at Punchestown suggests while Strategic Bid was in need of the experience at Gowran earlier this month and is another who will improve. Winning point-to-pointer Thats The Dream looks best of the remainder.
