Verdict

Jimtown has some decent form but has also had plenty of chances and looks vulnerable to an unexposed type. LUCCIOLA fits that category after her excellent run when just failing to catch Strada Colorato at Naas and normal progress should see her very difficult to beat. Van Rooney's third place behind Wrote at Cork in August is the best form on view but he was a little disappointing later though both subsequent starts were on Polytrack. Acorn Valley should have more to give this summer while Hes Our Music found 1m3f stretching his stamina behind Ernest Hemmingway at Dundalk. 7.30
