Benbecula was a useful performer on the level in Ireland and now has his first run over timber for Richard Mitchell since leaving Johnny Murtagh - he's worth a market check. Clubs Are Trumps displayed promise when fourth in a Southwell bumper on debut and should certainly improve with time and a set of hurdles. French winner Madness Light has his first run for Warren Greatrex and is respected whilst Trillerin Minella will be all the better for a latest outing after an absence. Sea Island Pearl is not discounted but the vote goes to GAELIC WARRIOR. A bumper winner in March, he shaped nicely behind Doctor Harper here last time and should improve again.
