Verdict
A highly competitive looking sales bumper in which leading trainers Gordon Elliott and Willie Mullins both boast a strong hand. Victory however can go the way of Jessica Harrington's SIZING POTTSIE, the winner of a bumper at Leopardstown on debut last month. The well-bred Yukon Lil is taken to claim second on her debut for the Mullins stable while Whoshotthesheriff, who finished third to the selection on debut can finish best of the Elliott runners by claiming third. Pat's Pick is another to consider for last years winning stable.
