Dubh Go Leir has been very unlucky not to lose her maiden tag in bumpers and over timber and might be unfortunate again as she is up against two highly regarded winning bumpers though her allowances will ensure she doesn't go down without a fight. LORD OF LORDS won a Navan bumper by no less than 23l on his debut in March and could be anything. He's from a fine jumping family and the fact that Edward O'Grady has him in a Grade 2 at Navan on Saturday suggests he's ready for this. It's difficult to know what to make of Tempo Du Camp's bumper victory in the French Provinces but Willie Mullins has entered him in the Grade 1 Royal Bond next month so he's obviously well regarded. Smart Money may prove best of the remainder though they'll all need to find improvement.
