Verdict

Afterclass made his debut over hurdles at Galway where his jumping wasn't fluent but he showed plenty of speed and this bumper should suit. Masterofdeception has shown definite signs of ability in bumpers though is much more likely to be suited by a flight of obstacles. Lord Scoundrel, who is related to several decent winners, and Zigger Zagger, a half-brother to winning hurdler Our Man Zebo, are newcomers to note from powerful yards while Silver Tara won a point at Belclare in May by a distance. ROYAL CAVIAR's pedigree is all about jumping fences but he was very impressive when scoring between the flags at Castletown in April after which new connections went to £90,000 to get him at the Sales. He can start repaying some of the outlay here.
