URUBU D'IRLANDE must have had a problem as he looked an exciting prospect when beating Oscar Rock in a Taunton bumper in October 2012. The runner-up went on to complete a hat-trick so the form looks very strong and a successful return to action looks on the cards. Dear Darling looks sure to win races after a very encouraging debut behind Midnight Jazz at Towcester while Glamorous Sister showed some promise before well beaten at Cheltenham. Admiral Miller is a half-brother to three winning bumpers and will know his job as will According To Harry, who is related to several winners. Yanworth is another with a smart pedigree who should have a future.
