Fayette County and Milan Bound both won bumpers in Ireland last season. The latter looks the better long-term prospect but another bumper winner, SIMARTHUR, looked a sure-fire future winner over hurdles when running Billfromthebar to a nose over 3m at Hexham. A couple of previous winners were behind that day so the form looks solid. Tiny Dancer was third at Hexham in May and Blakemount has won a point-to-point but the remainder are likely to struggle again.
