Verdict

Blackstone had appeared to improve on his penultimate start over this trip at the Curragh and his latest run when tailed off at Fairyhouse is best ignored as he completely lost his action in the early stages. The beautifully-bred Weld Arab has shown little in two starts but Intense Debate is the form pick after a couple of narrow defeats though she's already well exposed and vulnerable to an improver. ELUSIVE LAWRENCE caught the eye when staying on nicely over 7f at Roscommon after missing the break. She'll need to improve but there should be plenty more in the tank and she's handed the vote.
