Flemengo was tailed off on her hurdling debut and Misty Mornin failed to complete on her first attempt over timber. Chambray Dancer has the best form in bumpers and is preferred to Lady Boru, but this can go to one of the Irish point-to-point winners. Zaffaran Rain scored at Necarne in May and can figure, but SPIRIT OSCAR had a subsequent bumper winner behind when runner-up on her latest start and gets the vote having since joined Oliver Sherwood.
