In depth

Verdict

COMMODUS has been very busy having run four times already this month. He was 6lb out of the handicap when an excellent third behind I Remember You in a better race at Leopardstown on Saturday so looks very well in on his correct rating here and looks the one to beat. Harvest Bow comfortably landed a 7f Gowran nursery on testing ground from today's rival Elusive Fantasy and ran even better from an 8lb higher mark at Leopardstown last weekend so is an obvious threat. Spiritual Impulse led for a long way in that former race and wasn't beaten far at the finish so has to be respected along with Cuban Surfer, who was only just behind and has since performed with credit at Leopardstown.
