Verdict

Alileo, a son of Galileo, has been racing in France though not since 2011 and meets some in-form and race-fit rivals. Gardelito has shown some promise and his yard could hardly be in better form while Thomond appears to have been racing over trips too far. His best effort came when just failing to hold Goodoldhonkytonk over 2m4f at Clonmel and he should go close here. JOLAINE had shown promise for Ralph Beckett before joining Noel Kennedy and she made Theonewiththeleg pull out all the stops at Sligo last month. The winner gave the prolific Busted Tycoon a fright at Galway so the form looks strong and Jolaine can go one better.
