Verdict

ROCKET LAD beaten a subsequent winner when landing the odds at Tramore and looks set to strike again though this looks a bit tougher. Streets Of Doyen has changed hands for £68,000 since a comfortable victory at Ayr while Centaur has twice run well under a penalty after scoring at Downpatrick. Wings Of Destiny is Flat-bred and made very little when sent to the sales in the spring but is with the right man to get the best out of him.
