Verdict

The Home Ruler has been placed once in thirteen starts but has dropped to such a lowly mark that he has to be considered. It's over three years since Trans City won a race and Ana O'Brien has been unable to get much out of him recently but Rock N Rover has been racing over longer trips so the drop in distance could aid his cause. Zelos Dream has one victory to his credit in 36 starts, at Beverley in 2009, though he couldn't go much lower in the weights. PEGGY'S LEG is yet another maiden and she'll be taking a huge step up in trip having never raced beyond 7f but she was staying on so strongly over that trip at Roscommon last time that she's expected to see out the extra and gets the vote.
