Verdict

Mark Johnston doesn't send horses on trips across the Irish Sea for fun and appears to have spotted a good opportunity for HAJOUM. The four-year-old is only 2lbs higher than when successful at Goodwood last month and had earlier shown his liking for Polytrack by scoring at Wolverhampton. Sean Og Coulston has been a credit to John Coleman this year and gained his third victory over 6f at Listowel. He almost made it a quick double when runner-up over 1m1f at Fairyhouse and should be ideally suited by today's trip. Award Ceremony hasn't won for over two years but has dropped to a fair mark as a consequence and Leigh Roche's claim will be a bonus. He's Got Rhythm is in good heart and though he's never won on Polytrack he has several near misses behind him.
