Verdict

An interesting little race as Alton Bay is improving rapidly and followed victories in a bumper and a maiden hurdle by beating Thursday's winner Little King Robin easily at Tramore. Grecian Tiger is well suited by a stiff test of stamina and may not get it in this small field but Macnicholson has progressed into a smart hurdler and, if carrying that improvement to the Flat, will be thereabouts. TOTALLY DOMINANT, who has won bumpers at Punchestown and Bellewstown on his last two starts, looks suited by the race conditions and with David Mullins claiming.
