Verdict

The obvious starting point is Dewcup, who ships weight to the field, as he wasn't beaten fair in grade Aintree bumper when last spotted. He's likely to make up into a decent hurdler before long. On paper though there is plenty to like about Henry De Bromhead's newcomer GABBYS CROSS. A winner of his only point-to-point, the €170,000 purchase will know his job on the first day of school and could be above-average. Jazzaway also has fair bumper form and is in the mix along with Nero Rock, second over timber at Cork in May when last out.
