    Verdict

    LANDERO, who won on the Flat in Germany and cost 60,000gns in 2010, ran so well behind Roman Flight at Cork a week ago that he will prove very difficult to beat here. Young Palm began his career with a victory in an Ayr bumper and showed that was no fluke with a fine run in a better event at Limerick last time. He can make his mark over timber while Tony Martin had several early entries and relies on the once-raced Gardelito, who never showed in a strong Killarney maiden. Dr Moloney showed a little promise at Downpatrick and may do best of the remainder.
