New Kid In Town doesn't look a stable star on what we've seen of him so far between the flags though this is a poor bumper and it would be no shock to see massive improvement. SIR ABBOT won a point-to-point at Avaune in December and was sent straight over hurdles for his debut under Rules at Leopardstown the following month. He ran very well there and should have enough pace for this. Bound To Fly, Slim Pickens and Havana Dancer have looked moderate but Aston Cantlow has joined Gordon Elliott and may be capable of better.
