Jim Bolger has few runners in bumpers but when he does they are worth following so TAISPEANTAS can make a winning racecourse debut. She's a sister to a winning hurdler and related to several winners on the Flat. Her dam won the Queen Alexandra Stakes so everything looks in place for her to make a successful start. Lady Of Glencoe disappointed when favourite at Wexford on Saturday though she will have needed the run after a break and should get competitive. Good As Gold might also just need this, a remark that also applies to Honey Back, but Jennies Jewel is profressing nicely as she showed at Listowel last month. Lughnasa made a winning debut at Cork in March so fitness shouldn't be a problem while the consistent Ourbeautifuldream would have a chance if the ground dried up.
