BROTHER TEDD's dam Neltina won a couple of bumpers as well as races over hurdles and fences. By Kayf Tara, Philip Hobbs' gelding is certainly bred to do well under NH Rules and can make a winning start in this ahead of Minella Present, third at Tipperary in June but having his first start for new connections here. Paradise Valley is one for the future while Princeton Royale also has his first start under Rules, though was second in a point-to-point at Lisronagh in May.
