    Quality card. We could well be seeing four Festival winners from those races on Saturday.

    Excellent racing and the concluding bumper normally throws up a decent sort with Al Ferof, Outlander, Identity Thief and the hugely unfortunate Lucky Pass all recent winners.

    First instinct was back Red Jack when I saw the prices but that Mengli Khan was impressive the last day. I like Rathvinden in the Drinmore.

    I had heard they planned on running the mare in the Drinmore as she was getting all the allowances but not so sure GE will run 2 in the race

    I hear you wilson but the problem with bumpers is you get so many false favs and some real loud ones like Identity Thief 25/1 .

    Like Jenifer Juniper today who couldn't even go the gallop going off fav because of who trains them.

    It seems in Ireland if the name Mullins or the giggi colours are involved then they are made fav automatically even if they might be useless.

    It makes betting in bumpers a nightmare

    Rather have my gooles on Apples Jade then sit back and watch

    I don't think it'll be a betting race Fist. My point was it's one to watch for the future.

    I suppose its fair to see Apples Jade in here rather taking on Irving again(and the Champ), but she's also alot better over this trip so it won't make it easy on NC's first run. Just like hopefully Rathvinden won't make it easy for Death Duty. Going for a NC/Rathvinden double myself.

    Rathvinden has been been brought along slowly, this is where will see exactly what level he is

    I'd be disappointed in DD if he isn't good enough to win this

    Iíd be very interested in Early Doors in the Royal Bond at a price if he was an intended runner. Obviously Joseph has Le Richebourg in it too but Early Doors form has been good and it took a very nice boost yesterday.

    Diana Dors died years ago...good news is the Death Duties were paid.

    Mullins sounded quite bullish about Rathvinden but I'm with you. DD was a huge disappointment at Chelters but this could be his game

    8/1 for Red Jack is crazy. I've had a nice big lump.

    He's already beaten Le Richebourg in his bumper, and whilst Mengli Khan was impressive last time I'm not sure he beat anything of note. I noted that he looked as though he needed the race last time too, so I'd expect him to come on a bundle. I'd also imagine in terms of selecting horses it was thought that Flanagan was the best non-retained jockey for JP's three, as I can't fathom why Le Richebourg or Early Doors would be ahead of him.
