Verdict

Bombadero, beaten just a length by the classy Monksland at Navan last December, has come nowhere near that form subsequently and this looks an ideal opportunity for CHAMPAGNE AGENT to finally get off the mark over hurdles. Willie Mullins' bumper winner has definitely been a bit disappointing over timber but has bumped into some useful opposition along the way and today's likely quicker surface should enable him to gain his first success. Lastofthepilots has also won a bumper but shown little over timber but winning point-to-pointer Itsy Bitsy Spider is likely to do better over hurdles than in his two starts in bumpers.
