Verdict

A field of newcomers so the betting is likely to be worth noting but the eye is draw to GENERAL CUSTARD, who cost connections €78,000 and has potent Olly Murphy / Richard Johnson axis on his side. No surprise to see him going well. Local trainer Peter Bowen may have this targeted for Potters Tale while Bachy Baby and A Book Of Intrigue can also hold claims on paper.
  1. General Custard
  2. Bachy Baby
  3. A Book Of Intrigue
