Verdict

IRISH BOY has won two of his three starts this year and is taken to continue his upward curve. Melodize got the better of him at Redcar last month but re-opposes on worse terms today and the former looks the one to beat having gone in at Warwick since. Rothesay Chancer is getting closer to losing his maiden tag and was runner-up over C&D last time, but Spontaneity has a bit to find with the principals on recent form. Empress Royal appears to be running into form and could figure dropped in class.
