Verdict

Ruler Of France has been caught close home over 7f on both starts but this likely faster ground should enable him to last out the mile and he should go close. Paddy Mac benefited from his opening run and attempted to make all at Sligo but could only stay on at one pace when headed. Sinndar Desert will have found 7f on fast ground too quick for him at Leopardstown and this is more his trip but KINGFISHER, who wasn't fancied on his Leopardstown debut, stayed on nicely when getting the hang of things and looks the one to be on. Jockey bookings suggest Lord Of The Nile should come out best of the Dermot Weld pair.
