Verdict

CORR POINT was sent off favourite at Down Royal last month but could only fifth, a place behind Blue Vic. The pair meet on identical terms here but there are grounds for thinking that the top weight can come out on top this time and recoup losses. Definite Knockoff shaped with promise on his reappearance at Gowran and shouldn't be far away back over a more suitable distance. He has the beating of Rock County on that run. Gortmore Express and Dashing Lady could have place claims but the remainder are harder to fancy.
