Verdict

David Wachman won this with an odds-on chance last year but Keyword finished last on his debut at Leopardstown. THE ORGAN GRINDER has run well behind two useful Ballydoyle inmates and won't find many better opportunities to lose his maiden tag so is handed the vote. Jim Bolger's Home School should be suited by this trip on his debut and looks better than Albrecht, who faded at Listowel after showing good early pace.
