After a couple of decent runs over 7f, Inkerman couldn't go the pace when dropped in trip at Naas and is better than he showed there. LATE ROSEBUD was probably unlucky not to finish closer when third at Fairyhouse last month and was then impeded badly when challenging over a longer trip at Ballinrobe. She can make amends here though Jim Bolger's newcomers are also worth noting in the betting and Feasta will be primed for her debut. Dandy Girl is related to six winners including a couple of useful performers so should be kept on the right side.
