Verdict

Ange Balafre produced a couple of promising efforts earlier this year before a poor run at Sligo. He's been given a break and can do better but he's likely to be at a short price and is taken on by the newcomer HENRY'S GIRL. John Kiely and Derek O'Connor are a formidable partnership in bumpers and the daughter of Royal Anthem will know her job. Neither Knox's Bridge nor The Next Big Thing have really impressed so it's another newcomer, Goingagainstmywill, who is related to several winners, who could prove the main threat.
