Verdict

Following the market might prove the best option in this low-grade contest. Sulki Rose had shown virtually nothing before beaten a head by Carpet Elegance at Down Royal. A repeat would probably be good enough but whether that will be forthcoming is another matter. Roman Numeral scored at Cork in March and, though not doing so well subsequently, this isn't the toughest of races but GOLD TANTRUM is given the nod as he has a chance second to none at his best and is fit from the Flat. City Line is still a maiden and has plenty of weight while Sweet Maria has been badly out of form over fences.
