Verdict

King's Road hadn't been showing much over hurdles but ran very well on his return to the Flat at Tipperary though the 1m4f trip looked in his favour and he may find this too short. Man In Black ran quite well behind Mount Abora at Cork so a big run from the winner in the previous race will point to his chances though like Cool Athlete he's a long-time maiden who can't get his head in front when it matters. BADGER OR BUST has a poor strike-rate and his best runs have been over 7f but he returned to the Flat with a good run over a mile at Dundalk last time and his overall form in better handicaps than this give him a chance to gain just his second career success on his 36th start.
