Winning bumper Mireya had some decent form over timber earlier this year and has been performing with credit on the Flat. Connaught Manor, who made a winning bumper debut last July, has shown only moderate form to date over hurdles while Bulgaden hasn't run for over a year. Corr Point has the form to win this but has produced his best on much faster ground but Grand Jesture made a winning bumper debut on testing going and is the type to do well over timber this season. Popmurphy ran a shocker at Sligo last month after a summer's absence but Romeo Is Bleeding has been going well and should get into the picture. THE JOB IS RIGHT landed a LImerick bumper in May before coming up against the progressive Indevan over hurdles at Punchestown three weeks later where he wasn't beaten far. He has an absence to overcome but looks to be on the upgrade and can gain his first success over timber.
