Verdict

Mrs Henderson has done nothing to recommend her but the remaining trio look closely matched. BONISLAND won a point-to-point, a bumper and a maiden hurdle last year and produced three placed efforts against strong opposition earlier this year. He hasn't run since April but should be up to this as Local Celebrity has been absent for almost a year. Willie Mullins' charge made a satisfactory start over fences when third to Tillahow at Thurles though the quick ground could be a problem for him. Rogue Angel, a winner between the flags and successful in a maiden hurdle at Galway last October, ran a tremendous race in a handicap hurdle here in April and, as his breeding is all about jumping fences, he will give his two rivals plenty to think about.
