Verdict

ROCK THE WORLD was well supported on his opening run at this track last month but found Martello Tower just too strong. Time should tell he was taking on something special and compensation awaits. Winning point-to-pointer Bendanella made a fair bumper debut at Fairyhouse and should improve but the main threat is likely to emerge in the shape of Faugheen. Willie Mullins' charge landed a point at Ballysteen by eight lengths a year ago and is certain to know his job on his bumper debut. The market should prove the best guide to the newcomers though Andy Oliver's Josses Hill has a nice pedigree for this game and could reward each-way support.
