Verdict

A poor turnout in which Walk Right Back is likely to attract strong support after a fair effort in a Bellewstown handicap last weekend where he came from a long way back to finish fourth behind Body Beautiful. Acting Talent didn't run badly behind Ucanchoose here last month though he's had plenty of opportunities and Forebear has shown a bit of speed over longer trips. The newcomer Acroleina is speedily-bred and the market should give an indication to her chances but the vote goes to JOHNNY LAWMAN. He would have finished closer at the Curragh last month but for being impeded and today's quicker ground could bring out the best in him.
