Verdict

Yes Sir Brian made a winning bumper debut at Punchestown before beaten by two useful rivals in his next races. He made a fair debut over timber three weeks ago and has an obvious chance reverting back to this sphere. Fort Smith caught the eye when staying on nicely from the rear in a maiden hurdle won by Moyle Park at Navan so the fact that he has been entered in this bumper is intriguing. Crown Of Gold should make a chaser one day but this should go to VALUE AT RISK. Philip Fenton's charge, runner-up in a huge field at Punchestown in April, reappeared at Fairyhouse earlier this month and was always going well enough to hold Windsor Park. Normal progress will see him very difficult to beat.
