Verdict

BOOTHILL looked a smart prospect when pushed out to win a bumper in February and can make a successful start over hurdles on his return. Philip Hobbs has won this twice in recent years so bumper-second Orbys Legend rates a possible threat. The Brass Man and Fulgurix are open to progress now dropping in trip, while it'll be interesting to see what the market makes of point-recruit Red Lion Lad.

  1. BOOTHILL (IRE)
  2. ORBYS LEGEND (IRE)
  3. THE BRASS MAN (IRE)
