Willie Musson has won with two of his three runners in bumpers here in the last five years but Broughtons Star hasn't raced for two years. Swincombe Stone also has an absence to overcome and may need further but Feast Of Fire was second at Punchestown in October and shouldn't be far away on his first run for Jonjo O'Neill. Ranthambore and Tracking Time are starting to look exposed, however, and more interesting are Cabaret Girl and Fine Moment who were only separated by a neck at Warwick in a race that's worked out well. DUNDEE has a terrific NH pedigree being from the same family as a number of top-class jumpers. He looks a nice prospect and can make a winning start to his career.
