All ground came alike to BRONAGH’S BELLE on the Flat. Placed at the Galway Festival a year ago, she has an absence and inexperience to overcome but has a bright future if taking to hurdles. Caer fell on her hurdles bow but was still in touch at the time and should be thereabouts if her confidence remains intact. Saint Or Sinner has already won a bumper and improvement is expected over timber given connections. Waitnsee wasn’t beaten far over 2m4f here 12 days ago and Misty Mountain has twice finished second here, though is looking a little exposed now.
