    Verdict

    Gypsy King is likely to be at cramped odds after a promising start at Navan where he attempted to make all. However, Fiscal Focus was only half-a-length behind and he's let the form down with a moderate run at Naas. Adelaide looks the second of the Ballydoyle entries but it's by no means certain he'll play a supporting role and the betting should be monitored though another newcomer, FASCINATING ROCK, is taken to make a winning debut as his pedigree suggests he could be very useful at this trip. Sea's Aria didn't run badly behind Racing Post Trophy hope Century at the Curragh and should improve enough to get competitive.
