In depth

Verdict

Willie Mullins appears to have found a nice opportunity for TEMPO DU CAMP to make a winning debut. It's difficult to know what to make of his victory in a bumper in France back in 2010 for which he has a penalty though third-placed Thermidor won his next two starts. The opposition here is poor and it will be a disappointment to connections if he's beaten. Caballo De Marcus showed plenty of potential in bumpers and did a little bit better over hurdles at Galway last time but winning point-to-pointer Carrig Rua Lady was beaten a long way on her hurdling bow at Fairyhouse. Living Next Door may prove best of the remainder.
