In depth

Verdict

His Excellency is a half-brother to the useful stayer Leg Spinner so was always going to struggle as a juvenile. He should do much better this year and goes on the short-list despite a big weight. Via Del Corso has done better since receiving a handicap mark and has been going on nicely over shorter trips. This looks more like it and she can get involved as can Reasons Unknown, who was just behind her at Dundalk last time. BAT MASTERSON was even further behind that day but Noel Meade's charge was noted making up good ground when the race was all over. With an extra two furlongs to cover here and that run behind him he is given the nod, especially with a pedigree that cries out middle-distances. File And Paint ran well enough on his reappearance at Leopardstown and is another to consider in an open contest.
