Verdict

SHRAPNEL is improving at a rate of knots and makes a very quick reappearance after beating the well-regarded Turban at Fairyhouse on Wednesday. The longer trip won't be a problem and a follow-up looks on the cards though stablemate Bonisland, who looked in need of a real stamina test when scoring over 2m6f at Down Royal, could prove a threat. Rule The World has Busty Brown a head behind when they occupied the places behind Our Vinnie in a Grade 3 at Cork and that pair look certain to get involved while Wingtips could prove best of the remainder under Ruby Walsh.
