Verdict

It's almost four years since Bowfinger won a point at Toomebridge but the fact that he's now with Willie Mullins suggests more is expected, though he'll need one to come out if he is to get in from his reserve spot. Derek O'Connor has steered Tyrone Golden Rain to seven victories between the flags and it was no disgrace to be beaten by the enigmatic Kings Johns Castle at KIlfeacle last time. Una Duce represents Enda Bolger and this recent Aghabullogue winner looks sure to go well but it's ISLAND PEAK, a good fourth behind Whyso Mayo in a very strong event of this nature at Thurles a week ago, who can come out on top. Wheres Harry and Nevada Knight are young hunters on the upgrade who can make their presence felt.
