Verdict

Winning bumper Raya Time was undoubtedly disappointing when third in a Fairyhouse maiden last month and will need to do better. BEHIND THE CURTAIN was narrowly beaten in a Punchestown bumper in 2017 and was returning from over a year off when coming with a late run to land a similar contest at Cork. He should do well over hurdles and can make a winning start. Milan Native looked a staying prospect when running on over 2m4f in a Leopardstown bumper and may find this on the short side in the prevailing conditions. Nothing else stands out though Tramore bumper winner Dumhach Thra ran well for a long way on his hurdling bow over 2m3f at Naas.
