Verdict

Many more of these enter the fray in better form than the first division including Alderimli, an all-the-way winner at Down Royal for which she has picked up a 7lb rise. Pumped Up For Kicks attracted strong support at Downpatrick but probably found the ground too lively though she ran well enough to give herself a chance here. Revolutionary Road landed a poor handicap at Tramore and has gone up 6lb so it's HE IS TOP CLASS who gets the nod. He was having his first start since September when attempting to make all at Listowel three weeks ago and remained close up until the latter stages so with that under his belt he's taken to gain his first ever success.
