Verdict

ROUGH JUSTICE hasn't always looked unreliable over hurdles but didn't do much wrong at Sligo three weeks ago. He's always looked like a staying chaser in the making and can make a successful debut over the bigger obstacles. Definite Ruby has to be a major threat on her close second to Mrs Mac Veale at Tramore where she stayed on strongly after being held up. That experience will have done her the world of good and the 5lb she receives from the selection will help. Please Talk has now had a dozen starts over fences and has failed to finish in four of them but he produced his best run to date behind stablemate Bose Ikard at Roscommon and may be just getting the hang of the job. The remainder have plenty to do.
