Verdict

Sandy Jane and Well Tuned are recent bumper winners, the former looking a nice prospect on her racecourse debut at Limerick. Minella Foru won a point-to-point at Lemonfield in March and is just the type Eddie Harty does so well with for JP McManus. Chicago won three races for Aidan O'Brien on the Flat but hasn't shown much for some time though still at a high level. But this can go to Willie Mullins' French recruit SHAMSIKHAN, who is bred to be very useful in staying events on the Flat and managed to win a minor race in the Provinces last year.
