A bumper winner in Ireland for former connections, SUMMERVILLE BOY has continued to improve since joining Tom George and rates the one to beat on the back of his narrow Grade 2 defeat on the old course here last month. Western Ryder was third behind Lalor in the Grade 2 bumper at Aintree in the spring but has arguably progressed past that rival over hurdles based on what we've seen so far, so he may be the one to put up most resistance.
SUMMERVILLE BOY really upped his game when runner-up in a Grade 2 contest here last month and should have more in the locker after only a couple of starts over timber. He is taken to land what looks a competitive affair. Lalor and Western Ryder head the list of dangers.
