Verdict

Irish Bulletin, a winner over 1m4f at Wexford for Jim Bolger, is an interesting recruit to hurdling but he'll need to be smart to see off KITTEN ROCK at a difference of just 7lb. A dual winner on the Flat in France, he made a very impressive hurdling debut for new connections at Navan where he had plenty in hand and should remain unbeaten. Black Ice, who was having his second start that day, was beaten 12 lengths and is most unlikely to reverse the form.
