Verdict

TOTALLY DOMINANT has changed stables since a cracking debut behind Grecian Tiger at Naas in January and, now with the champion trainer, he's expected to take this before going on to better things. Ange Balafre has performed with credit in two strong bumpers and will know more this time while Blow The Doors Off made a very promising bumper debut at Fairyhouse and looks a nice prospect. Captain Hox is by Danehill Dancer and bred for the Flat so he should have more pace than most.
