Soundly beaten on both previous starts in bumpers and yard's horses not running well enough presently to earn consideration.

Shantou gelding that cost €26,000 as a three-year-old. Related to a couple of useful winners and dam won her bumper. Clear of the third when beaten by a smart prospect on debut and yard had a winner with only previous bumper winner here.

610-12OR:
4/1

By top-class miler Soviet Star out of a stoutly bred dam. Runner-up in a slowly run newcomer's event and could provide trainer with a first ever bumper winner if the pace is more honest.

Resplendent Glory mare, represents trainer that does well in this sphere. Poor on two starts in Ireland and needs vast improvement to be competitive.

Betting

Forecast

Nickelsonthedime (8/13), Soviet Castle (4/1), Scorchin (7/1), Rocket Man Rodney (12/1), Mega Double (18/1), Gold Fields (20/1), Markmyword (25/1), Ridgeway Pearl (150/1)

Verdict

Mega Double is an interesting newcomer but this looks best left to NICKELSONTHEDIME and Soviet Castle. The latter was second in a slowly run newcomers contest and that may have counted against him given the amount of stamina in the pedigree. Nevertheless, the selection is preferred having clocked a good speed figure when chasing home a highly regarded winner but finishing clear of the remainder.
