Verdict

Dermot Weld isn't best known for training bumpers but he's still managed to win this three times in recent years so the newcomer Marty's Magic, whose pedigree will be better suited by speed than most of these, has to be respected. Jim Bolger saddles Sukiyaki, who didn't show much at Punchestown in April but will have benefited from the experience and will be expected to do much better. Aidan O'Brien's Egyptian Warrior didn't enjoy the fast ground at Killarney after a better run at the Curragh but this should go to Willie and Patrick Mullins via WICKLOW BRAVE. He showed the benefit of his opening run with a fine effort behind Stephanie Frances at Punchestown where he hung in the closing stages due to inexperience and fast ground. Top Othe Ra was behind in that latter race and looks held but Diamond Gesture showed improvement at Ballinrobe and should get involved.
