In depth

Verdict

A quite competitive looking bumper to round off a good card but BULLOCK HARBOUR showed such battling qualities to beat a huge field on fast ground at Punchestown that he can follow up for Jessie Harrington, who also runs recent Killarney runner-up Takeyourcapoff, who is progressing well. Raise The Beat didn't beat such a strong field when successful at Down Royal but did it nicely and there is more to come from Colm Murphy's charge. Double Double would have finished closer to Divine Rhapsody at Punchestown but for running wide off the home turn and looks an obvious threat while the filly Corrib Princess gets all the allowances and has had plenty of experience at this level.
