Nine of these have already won at least one bumper and another seven have been placed. CAOIMHE'S DELIGHT had Kymin's Way over four lengths behind when scoring in heavy ground at Punchestown and that looks strong enough form for this though there are numerous dangers including the dual winner Honey Bach, an easy winner over the previously successful Jennies Jewel at Punchestown last month after her Down Royal victory. Charlie Longsdon sends surprise Warwick winner Venceremos from the UK while the likes of Fickle Fortune and Que Pasa are live dangers in probably the toughest bumper of the season so far.
