Verdict

GENTLEMAN DUKE finished third to Dumbarton on his reappearance at Cork three weeks ago. He doesn't appear to have much to fear from today's opposition and can open his account, though Jonathan Wild wasn't disgraced in fourth on his return at Listowel in September and Gone Wrong would figure with a repeat of her third at the same track. Sammy Black is likely to improve on his recent debut effort at Galway and Diamondgeezer Luke ran well for a long way on his hurdling debut behind Kilavalley. Colley Row made a promising debut in a bumper and is worth noting.
