JABUS has been threatening to win for some time and produced another fine performance at Killarney last week where he found only Sizing Solution too strong. He can go one better in this moderate contest. The maiden Stop Road Lad has been slowly dropping in the weights and with his rider claiming 7lb he's on a mark that he should be exploiting soon but Royal Shot couldn't justify strong support when mid-division at Roscommon. Valours Minion is very one-paced and has now had 26 starts without winning but Idontdalaay produced easily her best effort to date at Wexford and it wouldn't take much more to get involved in this.
