Verdict

Gypsy Island attracted support on her racecourse debut in a Ballinrobe bumper in August and did it very well. She has a fine jumping pedigree and her allowance should ensure she makes a bold bid. Put The Kettle on made a promising debut over 2m3f at Clonmel then ran well again at Wexford over this trip She has plenty more to offer and is an obvious threat though WHATUCALLHER (NAP) looks the one to be on. She couldn't match strides with the long odds-on Court Maid at Cork on her reappearance but the winner landed a Punchestown handicap a week ago so the form looks strong. The remainder have plenty to do with Ask Neilus making her hurdling bow after showing very little in bumpers.
