Verdict

Bright New Dawn ran well enough in a couple of bumpers to be sent into Grade 2 company for his hurdling debut and he did very well to finish so close to Felix Yonger. He looks certain to win races this season but comes up against a couple of very promising rivals. LORD OF LORDS could hardly have been more impressive on his only start in a Navan bumper in March. He's passed up several chances to make his debut over timber in recent weeks and should be fit enough to make a winning start. Ned Buntline is well regarded by Noel Meade and looks a major threat. He wasn't beaten far by the very useful Jezki on his racecourse debut at Leopardstown in January and his fitness is guaranteed after an easy victory at Naas last month. Endless Intrigue has shown plenty of potential in better class events and is another to note in an intriguing opener.
