In depth

Verdict

Bonzo Bing had been threatening to win a race before landing a Clonmel maiden and though this is much tougher he's progressing nicely. Daliyan has improved with each run and though only 2l to the good at Clonmel last time won with plenty in hand. VICKY DE L'OASIS arrived from France having won three bumpers and has done very well for Willie Mullins, scoring twice and finishing in a place at Listed and Grade level. Her close second to Real Steel in a Grade 2 at Naas last time should be good enough for this. The Pounds looks best of the remainder though probably not quite good enough.
