Verdict

Bonisland was impressive in winning a point-to-point at Sligo in May and should make his mark under Rules. Knockanarrigan was sent off favourite on his debut at Thurles in February but finished tailed off and may need more time while Thunder And Roses, another with form between the flags, has shown little so far in bumpers. King Shabra is by Milan and could be a newcomer to note but Nina Carberry rides COULEUR FRANCE for Noel Meade and it would be no surprise if the Flemensfirth gelding got off the mark at the first time of asking.
