Verdict

On Tour won a point-to-point at Stradbally in May and could be interesting making his debut under Rules but newcomers FLYING EAGLE and Stormbay Bomber could dominate this bumper. Preference is for the former, who is by prolific NH sire Oscar though there isn't a loot of stamina on his dam's side. Radmores Express has looked very one-paced so far but Max Ward showed promise on his Stratford debut before lack of experience told.
