Verdict

Born In Fire and Grey Monk are potentially useful recruits from point-to-points and New River showed some form for Richard Hannon on the Flat, though Notable Graduate is probably best of those who have raced on the level and he's one to keep an eye on. NED BUNTLINE looked potentially high-class when landing a Naas bumper and started odds-on for his hurdling debut at Fairyhouse. However, he didn't jump with any fluency and was beaten by Bright New Dawn but with the experience behind him he can gain compensation. Urano won three bumpers in France before making a promising debut over timber at Thurles where he found Ally Cascade just too good. There's more to come from him and he's an obvious danger.
