Aminabad was conceding 10lb when 3l fourth behind OFF THE MARK at Leopardstown and there shouldn't be much between them though the winner appeared to have a bit in hand and can confirm the form and remain unbeaten. Rockingham Bay, who finished a close third, had earlier been almost 5l behind Aminabad on the same track and the form looks strong. What Lies Ahead was narrowly beaten in that latter event and has since gone one better at Punchestown so rates a serious threat. Red House Hill scored at Down Royal last month and his next race may have come too soon as he was beaten a long way at Naas a couple of weeks later. West Montan looks best of the remainder with experience though there are some interesting newcomers engaged.
