Verdict

This looks a stronger than usual bumper but it's BLACKMAIL who gets the vote. He won a point-to-point at Templemore in April before finding Champagne James too quick on his bumper debut at Navan and the likely stronger pace here will be in his favour. Bose Ikard started odds-on for his debut at Clonmel but looked in need of the experience while Rough Justice couldn't find a finishing burst at Punchestown and is likely to do much better when sent over jumps. Saffron Wells was battling on at the finish when runner-up to Outlander at Fairyhouse and can get competitive but Lady Of Glencoe has had her chances and has been looking one-paced.
