In depth


Bright Tomorrow was nowhere near his best in a bumper at Punchestown and makes his debut over hurdles but Crocodile Dundee has had plenty of experience, though didn't run well on good ground at Kilbeggan last time. Se Mo Laoch has improved with each bumper run but Zafarqand hasn't run since 2013. WAKEA reached a rating of 103 on the Flat for Jeremy Noseda and though all of his three victories have been on Polytrack his overall form suggests he could be good enough to make a successful debut.
