      Verdict

      ROMAN FLIGHT ran well on the Flat in March before making his debut over timber at Clonmel where he travelled well until tiring in the soft ground. That will have done him good and he may have a bit too much pace for God's County, who has now gone ten races over hurdles without winning. Ontheground ran easily his best race to date on fast going at Wexford last time and though Maxim Gorky was a beaten favourite here in October he ran well enough and his overall form puts him right in the picture. Black Belt was beginning to make progress when last seen in November and can prove a threat with all the allowances.
