Verdict

Aerlite Supreme has finished runner-up in three bumpers and a Naas maiden hurdle but hasn't been seen since a poor display at Cork in April. MR COSMOPOLITAN showed real promise in his two opening runs at the beginning of the year and though well beaten at Fairyhouse in April may not have appreciated front-running. He's handed the vote to bounce back though Sonny B looks on the upgrade and followed a narrow defeat between the flags with a fine debut under Rules in a Fairyhouse bumper. Royal Vic showed some promise last year and any market support should be heeded.
