Verdict

ENERGUMENE showed enough in his first bumper to suggest he can take this. The son of Denham Red shaped well until getting tired late on and should have learned plenty from that first effort under Rules. Both Bloodstone and Battle Of Actium showed ability in point-to-points so it will come as no surprise to see them very much involved as they represents strong connections, while Pipers Meadow has been second in both bumpers so far, although this looks a better race and he's been off for a while. Frontal Assault and Wings Of Destiny are both worth monitoring for market confidence as they hil from last year's wining yard that continues in fine for.
  1. Energumene
