Verdict

Jim Bolger likes to run horses under a penalty and though DREAM OF WORDS (NAP) only got up by a neck at Roscommon on Monday she found the 7f on the short side and had a bit in hand. She can complete a quick double though Bucky Larson enters the fray with a hard-fought victory over the course and distance and makes his handicap debut. Editorial started off with a victory over subsequent winner Irish Minister at Dundalk in February and was having his first subsequent start when last of five at Navan last week. Rapture's Delight looks best of Joseph O'Brien's pair having come with a late burst to land a 7f Gowran maiden last month as stable companion Palace Guard has never run on ground this quick.
