This is a very poor maiden and supporters of SANDS COVE are likely to plunge again despite his very disappointing form since his impressive victory in a Roscommon bumper. He's been a short price on all three subsequent starts and shown very little but rather in hope than expectation he's handed the vote to finally realise his potential. Johnnys Legacy scored on Polytrack at Dundalk in February but he's another who has continued to disappoint though there are bit and pieces of form over timber that suggest he should be in the frame in this grade. Saddlehimup has shown a glimmer of ability which may be enough to get him involved while Henrietta's Way does at least have a course victory to her credit as she gained a shock victory in a bumper two years ago.
