10/3

Stepped up on debut third at Clonmel to win comfortably at Downpatrick. Seemed to appreciate the better ground that day and should be at home on this surface. Big chance for powerful stable.

5/4

Close fourth on his debut at Punchestown and showed the benefit of that run when winning at Ballnrobe on his next start. Entitled to go on progressing and looks a major contender.

20/1

Son of Beneficial who cost €5,400 as a yearling and €13,000 as a 3yo and is from the family of very useful staying chaser The Grey Monk. Not unfancied when prominent for a long way before falling in a point-to-point, so is worth noting in the betting market for this bumper debut.

12/1

Stowaway mare whose dam won a 2m hurdle. Showed definite signs of ability on her debut at Wexford and can be expected to step up on that effort.

66/1

Beaten a long way on her only two starts in bumpers. Has her first run for this stable and can only be watched until showing signs of improvement.

33/1

By Jeremy, whose progeny tend to do well in the jumps game, out of a German-bred mare. Wears a tongue tie on debut and the market will be the best guide to her chances.

33/1

Fourth foal whose dam won an Irish maiden point. She is from the family of decent stayers Southern Vic and Pleasure Shared and has a future if sharing any of their ability. Worth a check in the betting.

50/1

By Arcano out of a Cadeaux Genereux mare, she makes some appeal on pedigree. A tongue tie is applied for her debut and she is another whose chance will be reflected in the market.

2/1

Has shown a decent level of ability when runner-up on both starts at Cork and Fairyhouse. Gets a fair chunk of weight from her likely market rivals and seems sure to go well for her leading trainer.

Betting

Forecast

Tower Bridge (5/4), Dalouga (2/1), Iolani (10/3), Broke Away (12/1), Ventura Boulevard (20/1), Aimee Kate (33/1), Lady Sherami (33/1), Alicia's Wish (50/1), Kingspan Ellie (66/1)

Verdict

A decent finale which sees some top stables represented. Iolani has to be respected despite being lumbered with top weight, while Dalouga gets all the allowances and has to be feared after finishing runer-up on both starts. She looks the main danger to TOWER BRIDGE, who was a decisive winner last time and can go in again. Ventura Boulevard is an interesting debutant, while Broke Away showed ability on debut and should improve.
  1. Tower Bridge
  2. Dalouga
  3. Iolani
