Verdict

Air Vice Marshal is sure to improve from an opening third at the Curragh but will need to as he was still six lengths behind the winner. HOPPALA is another capable of better given it was testing ground when he finished runner-up over today's trip at Listowel and first-time headgear should also sharpen him up. Gleine is harder to fancy but the newcomers Mogaz, Haraz and Rajapur are all worth noting representing powerful yards.
