Verdict

Verhoyen gained his only success to date here in March and has been going quite well on Turf including in Listed company at Naas. Waitingfortheday has really got his act together, defying an 8lb rise for his Leopardstown success when beating It's Only A Joke at Fairyhouse. He's up another 8lb but should make a bold bid though the maiden BEAU ROCKO, beaten just over 2l in that latter event, has a big pull in the weights and looks the one to be on. Queen Rabab has won over a mile here, where she had Innamorare a nose behind, and over that trip at Limerick. She's continued to run well but could find this on the short side and the latter could get her revenge over this trip. Stealth showed a bit of potential for John Gosden and has changed stables.
