Verdict

MEDAL OF HONOUR had to battle hard to see off Bond Street at the Curragh but that was his first run since December and with more to offer can defy his weight-rise. Bucky Larson's early summer double contained a course and distance victory and he didn't quite see out the 1m2f at the Curragh last time. Lethal Power was behind in that latter race but he'd scored over that trip Roscommon earlier. Theobald has run in two classics this season and though well beaten will find this less daunting but the remaining pair have a bit to find.
