Newcomer SIZING IRELAND is given the vote to land the finale at the expense of both Kind Of Easy and Impinella. The selection comes from the powerful Nicky Henderson stable who have a tremendous record in these bumper races. He is nicely bred and was an expensive purchase so hopes will be high in the Henderson camp. Kind Of Easy was thrown right in the deep end after running in a the Grade 2 Championship bumper at Newbury on his debut. He failed to trouble the judge that day but connections do think a lot of him so any moves in the market should be noted. Impinella showed promise on his debut over course and distance after finishing a decent fourth of eighteen. He is sure to benefit for the experience so is another to note. Sizing Ireland will have been well prepared for his debut and he is given the vote to take the finale.
