In depth


Winning point-to-pointer FURY ROAD looked in need of the run on his bumper debut on St Stephen's Day at Leopardstown and weakened in the closing stages. He'll know much more now and this shouldn't take much winning. The Rubinator will need to improve on his two runs but the mare Ranger P was in touch for a long way at Tramore. Resurrected Duke cost E65,000 and is related to a couple of winners so could be the one to shake-up the selection.
