Verdict

Mags Mullins introduces Xpectations, who is by Milan and a half-brother to a winning hurdler and chaser. He'll get every assistance form the saddle and could easily make a winning debut but we'll rely on the experience of Robbie McNamara's mount MARINERO. He was second on his debut under Rules at Leopardstown and third over course and distance last time. Though he'll be better when tackling hurdles, this should be within his capabilities. Amazon Mist hinted at ability at Wexford while Taniokey may be another newcomer to note.
