Howdoyoufindthered missed a simpler opportunity when Tipperary was abandoned earlier this week and King Of The Romans wears cheekpieces for the first time after disappointing on soft ground at Roscommon. Seven Samurai hasn't been seen since a promising debut at Gowran in May while Fulminata looks the best of Jim Bolger's pair being related to several winners including a Listed two-year-old winner. TIGER STRIPES had only shown decent form before sent into Grade 2 company at the Curragh last time where he produced a fine run behind Probably. That would be good enough for this and he looks the one to be on.
