Verdict

Table Forty Six ran very well behind Golan Guy here at the beginning of the month but poorly when well beaten at Tipperary last week. Marlos Moment has had plenty of chances but has run some very good races in defeat and it would be a surprise if he wasn't involved at the business end, though he is held by BLACK ROCK LAKE on their run behind Riltree at Sligo last time. Tom McCourt's charge loved the quick ground that day and may just have too much pace for Zagman, who has only ever raced on going with plenty of give. Hired Hand has been going well on the Flat and is another to consider in a competitive opener.
