Verdict

Plenty with a chance in this and Zadarska is sure to prove popular representing the Mullins and Walsh team on his first start since September but the value may lay elsewhere. Sam Da Vinci and Romeo Is Bleeding should both go well having found only one too good at Downpatrick and Tramore respectively. But Kylecrue has more scope for improvement as the point-to-point winner made a promising start under Rules when runner-up at Sligo on his hurdling bow. GOLDEN WONDER was slightly disappointing last time but had beaten a couple of subsequent winners when second at Punchestown in May. A repeat of that effort should see Dessie Hughes' charge off the mark in this.
