Verdict

Upazo won a couple of bumpers in the French Provinces in the spring and Willie Mullins will have him ready for this. But Tony Martin's UMPACT has a similar background and has only had one run. He won that, despite being allowed to start at generous odds, and may just have a bit more scope - Davy Russell takes the ride. Travis McGee was fourth in a Leopardstown bumper in March on his racecourse debut and is another with potential but Goodoldhonkytonk disappointed when favourite at Cork last month after a debut second at Roscommon.
