A strong bumper with several in with a chance though BENEFFICIENT looks the one to be on. Tony Martin's charge scored between the flags in February and made a highly promising bumper debut in a big field at Cork a month later. He may be good enough here though Mount Colah, a very easy point-to-point winner in March, was beaten just a head by Joxer in a Punchestown bumper two weeks ago and must be a major threat. Don Cossack was very green before and during his debut at Punchestown in May and could just need a little more time but Carrig Millie has been going well and is certain to be suited by the trip and testing ground.
