This won’t tale much winning, despite the big field. January Jets has a first run for Henry De Bromhead having placed at Fairyhouse and Naas last season for Jessica Harrington but THE LITTLE YANK may enjoy a fitness advantage. Second here at the Festival, the dual bumper winner was highly tried in his first season over timber and a race like this should be in his scope. Bull Halsey hinted at ability at Ballinrobe before running in a Bellewstown bumper and still has time on his side.
