WEATHERBYS CHAMPION BUMPER
1. Sir Gerhard 2. Kilcruit 3. Brandy Love Although displaced as favourite by Kilcruit, Sir Gerhard can land a hat-trick in this race for his owners. He beat Letsbeclearaboutit, who also finished second to Kilcruit, on ground softer than ideal and I think there’s less between the two market principals than the betting suggests. Kilcruit certainly had the wow factor about him last time. Whether he had to quicken or just maintain the gallop to win is open to debate but he’s a massive danger. Brandy Love could also be dangerous receiving weight.
