RUDOLF has yet to threaten but has been competing in better company than this. A repeat of his earlier fourth at Punchestown to stablemate and subsequent Grade 1 third Apache Jack should suffice. Points winner Guiding George has a third at Sligo to his credit, though that was nearly a year ago, and Lottolove led for a long way at Fairyhouse in January before fading badly in the closing stages. The Bishops Niece has been placed in a bumper at Limerick and is worth noting on her hurdling bow.
