A poor finale where the betting may provide some clues. Run Hurricane didn't make a bad start on this track in May but has hardly picked his feet up subsequently and Lo Siento has been well beaten in both starts though well supported. Vicangelome finished runner-up in a point-to-point before well beaten on his bumper debut at Navan and Perfect Promise, another runner-up between the flags, was beaten a long way when fourth in a bumper there. However, that was a Grade 2 race so someone must have faith in her and she should improve. HUNTERS VISION is a newcomer from a yard going well and the son of Hawk Wing out of a winning bumper is taken to make a successful debut.
