Verdict

SHALAMAN was having just his fifth start when catching the eye with a late run over a mile at LImerick and the former John Oxx-trained son of Oratario looks ready to gain his first success under the experienced Leigh Roche. Ross Coakley was on board when Table Forty Six finished with a real flourish at Tipperary last month and the combination should go close while Positive Vibes gained his only victory over 1m2f and this trip looks as though it will suit after a couple of runs over further. Hangar Five has never won a race and has had 26 starts but he could hardly get any lower in the weights and with his young rider's claim taken into account it would be no shock if he finally managed that elusive first victory.
