Verdict

Auden has won twice on the Flat including at Sligo last month which means he has penalties to carry. Hospital ran well when last seen in Early May at Sligo but has never raced on ground this fast. KING WILLIAM had only shown a modicum of ability before a much improved run behind Diplomat at Sligo and with further progress expected he can get on the scoresheet for the first time. Super Cloud is progressing well in bumpers and led for a long way in what looked a strong race of its kind at Killarney last week so he looks the main threat.
