Enchanted Forest has some strong form but he's now had 35 career starts, including 20 over hurdles, without winning. Double Irish, runner-up in a point-to-point in February, came up against a decent winner in Moonlight Boy in a Cork bumper in April and has the scope to go on to better things. ROCK THE WORLD showed potential in bumpers but should really come into his own over hurdles judged on his excellent debut behind Bishop's Road at Gowran where a last flight error may have cost him the race. He can go one better though Gilt Shadow could prove the fly in the ointment. A winner of the bumper on this card a year ago, he finished a superb runner-up to The Liquidator in the Champion Bumper at Punchestown and is expected to become a very useful hurdler. Winning point-to-pointer No More Heroes can do best of the remainder.
