Verdict

With the exception of Cillian's Return, who showed promise in two runs at Leopardstown earlier this year, those with bumper form look moderate so this can be fought out by two two point-to-point winners Sucker Punch and BLACK HERCULES. The former, who cost connections £105,000 after comfortably scoring between the flags at Lisronagh in March, looks more of a chasing type than his rival, who was very impressive when defying a last-fence error to score easily at Dromohane in April and can make a successful debut for the champion trainer.
