In depth

Verdict

SUNTAN made a bright start on the opening day of the season at the Curragh when narrowly defeated by High Award and was taking on much better opposition when a one-paced third to Zoffany over 6f at Naas last month. He may be good enough for this as Emperor Hadrian hasn't found a great deal to date and looks as though a longer trip may suit though he holds Mr Man In The Moon on their run behind Mr Mojito at Tipperary. Cloneylass should improve from a reasonable debut behind Foot Perfect here late last month and is respected.
