Verdict

Shield, a rare winning bumper these days for Ballydoyle, was well beaten in the champion bumper at Cheltenham on his latest start but looks to have every chance of gaining his first success under Flat rules. However, this could be a question of whether Orgilgo Bay stays the trip as his overall form is far superior to these rivals though he was well beaten when stepped up to 1m4f at Gowran. Back Off Mate was staying on strongly over 1m4f at Sligo and, as he's been placed over hurdles, he'll have no problems staying but a chance is taken on the fitness of EBANIYA, who makes a belated first appearance. She's by Sinndar out of the Irish Oaks winner Ebadiyla and is closely related to six winners.
