Verdict

The well-bred Irish Buccaneer won a Chepstow bumper in April and looks a decent prospect over hurdles. He shouldn't be far away while Presenting Arms has shown promise in a couple of starts at Wincanton and had Pinkneys Prince behind last time. Best Director has been placed in a couple of bumpers and The Boogeyman is a winning pointer, though may find further to show his best. DIAMOND LIFE was second to the useful Grove Pride at Ascot in January and filled the same position behind Netherby at Lingfield a month later. Providing he's fully wound-up, a first win here is a distinct possibility.
