Riverside City has shown definite promise but hasn't raced since December and we prefer GONE PLATINUM. Henry De Bromhead's Kilbeggan bumper winner is bred to be a jumper and can make a winning start over hurdles. The remainder appear a modest bunch but Sandymount Duke is probably capable of better, as is Redrobin.
