Verdict

TABLE ROCK was only the stable second string on his debut at the Curragh in October but did very well to finish only a head behind Ebanoran. He's entered in most of the major races and should make a successful reappearance. Maskoon showed the benefit of his opening run with a much better effort behind Boqa at Tipperary while Third Dimension was strongly supported on his handicap debut at the Curragh last month but couldn't quicken. With Dermot Weld in top form Rousayan, who started a short-priced favourite on his reappearance in a huge field at the Curragh but floundered in the heavy ground, is expected to do much better. Rust Never Sleeps was runner-up in a claimer on his debut at Dundalk and well beaten in a maiden there subsequently.
