This looks a poor bumper and the betting is best watched for clues but the form pick has to be BROUGH ACADEMY. Joanna Morgan's charge made a reasonable start at Downpatrick and was contesting a much better race when third to Cardin at Galway. Alf Wright has shown a little promise but probably needs further and Delia's Girl ran quite well behind Ginger Genie at Wexford so should get involved. Graces Dream may do best of the newcomers as she's the first foal of a winning bumper.
