In depth

Verdict

Donald McCain's record with winning pointers in bumpers is exemplary and LORD NAVITS can improve his strike-rate further. The four-year-old made all and quickened from the front when scoring between the flags at Limavady in March and looks a nice prospect under Rules. Rye Tangle ran well for a long way over a shorter trip at Towcester last month but Powermaker may have more scope. He ran green on his debut at Ffos Las but still showed enough to suggest he has a future. Catch The Rhythm also hinted at ability at Worcester and may prove the pick of the remainder.
