Verdict

Motown Bob didn't run badly on his debut at Punchestown and should do best of the trio with experience though this should go to a newcomer. The French-bred TURCAGUA cost 130,000 euros and will attract support and though his pedigree is all about jumping it's the same for all of his rivals so he is handed the verdict. Barossa Pearl is related to several winning jumpers, as is Rufino, while Don't Touch It can prove best of the Jessica Harrington pair. Sir Scorpion can go well for Tom and Danny Mullins and Charlie Swan's Chasing Waterfalls is another to note in the betting.
