Verdict

It's impossible to get away from the claims of FRUITS OF MOLLY. Paul Gilligan's charge had shown a glimpse of ability before producing a superb effort to finish runner-up to Shield in a huge field of maidens at Cork and would only need repeat that effort to take this. King Blue is unproven on this sort of ground and If Not For You is penalised for his bumper success though the latter is at home on fast ground as he proved when scoring between the flags at Tattersalls Farm. Ram Them All attempted to make all at Down Royal and only faded after a couple of late mistakes so he could be the one to bustle up the selection.
