In The Well showed nothing between the flags so it was a surprise when he was able to land a Listowel bumper over this trip earlier this month. He should do better as should Melanjo, a bumper winner here last month who finished a close fifth in that Listowel event. TANGO MOLL, who appeared to find 3m beyond her at Cork after a fine run over 2m6f at Downpatrick, is handed the vote in a tough contest to weigh up though Cosmic Wonder has been staying on at one pace in bumpers and has always looked as though a set of hurdles would be required.
