Betting

Forecast

Itsonlyrocknroll (4/7), Blunder Buss (9/2), Trump Sixteen (7/1), Duffgil Joe (8/1), Oldcastle (14/1), La Regle (16/1), Royal Zorro (25/1), Omygodrainagain (25/1), Twodoorsdown (33/1), Drumbar Millie (50/1)

Verdict

This looks a relatively weak bumper and if ITSONLYROCKANDROLL is anything like the average standard of Willie Mullins newcomer he should win it fairly easily. He doesn't possess the most exciting pedigree, but this yard's ability to take moderate pedigrees and turn them into great racehorses must be considered, and so he is the selection. Fellow newcomer Twodoorsdown didn't cost much but his half-brother won on his only racecourse appearance to date, while Trump Sixteen hasn't been totally disgraced in two attempts and bumpers so far.
