Verdict

Keppols Queen made a very encouraging debut behind Lord Adare at Limerick last month but didn't make the expected progress at Cork a couple of weeks later. She's better than that while winning point-to-pointer Zuccotti Park has been improving and wouldn't need to produce much more to get involved. King Leon has one moderate effort over hurdles behind him but showed better form in a Roscommon bumper last time though it's MOST PECULIAR who should have the call. Willie Mullins' charge landed a Downpatrick bumper in March and though not performing up to expectations at the Punchestown Festival he was always more likely to do better over jumps and looks to have been found a reasonable opportunity to make a successful start.
