Verdict

Elleval hasn't done too much wrong and might just have needed his latest run, his first on the surface. He should go well though like Won Diamond, who made a promising start at Leopardstown when Machete Mark was behind, he could have done with a better draw. AKDAM has a superb middle-distance pedigree and will have found 7f inadequate on his debut at Gowran. He was noted staying on late so with that under his belt and another furlong to travel he's handed the vote. Collingbourneducis made a pleasing debut for Richard Hannon at Newbury in October and has joined Tommy Carmody. He'll be primed for his first run for the yard and has to be a threat.
