Verdict

Ipsos Du Berlais, runner-up to Lyreen Legend on his chasing debut at Galway, jumped poorly when pulled up at Navan and needs a confidence booster. Vesper Bell, runner-up in the Grade 1 War Of Attrition Hurdle here in April, made a decent start over the bigger obstacles when narrowly beaten by Make A Track at Thurles with subsequent winner Canaly in third. He'll improve for that run and has to be a threat though YOU MUST KNOW ME made such a big impression when giving supporters of the long odds-on Boston Bob a fright at Navan that he's the one to be on. The remaining trio will need to improve to get involved.
