Jessica Harrington won this last year and BARRINGTON COURT can continue the sequence after a cracking effort behind the odds-on Relegate here last month. She'd earlier won a Listed bumper at Navan by 10l and will be very difficult to beat. Willie Mullins trains Relegate and has dual bumper winner Queens Boulevard engaged here though she was well behind the selection in that Navan event. Valdieu had been threatening to win a bumper for some time before finally doing so by 10l at Down Royal and he looks a nice recruit to hurdling as does Final List, a comfortable bumper winner at Tramore.
