Verdict

The form pick on her excellent third to the classy Bullock Harbour on her debut at Punchestown has to be THIEVING GYPSY though potential punters will need to forgive a very poor effort on her return from a six-months break at Gowran earlier this month where she hardly picked her feet out of the soft ground. Jakros showed much improved form when just beaten by Another Chieftain at Tipperary though Noel Meade's charge looks in need of a stamina test which he is not certain to get here. Three Monkeys has shown ability and anything saddled by Willie Mullins in bumpers is worthy of consideration while winning point-to-pointer Emmas Island ran reasonably well on her bumper debut though she's likely to do better when faced with a set of obstacles.
