UN ATOUT landed the odds with the minimum of fuss on his debut in a Naas bumper in January and will be a short price on his return to action. He's a half-brother to three hurdle winners and can take this before going on to better things. Some Article also made a winning debut in a bumper at Punchestown in April and should go well along with Fickle Fortune and Totally Couture. Those with hurdling experience make little appeal though Surf's Up could prove best of them.
