Verdict

Sicilian Secret got off the mark over timber at the seventh attempt when beating today's rival Ross Na Righ comfortably at Fairyhouse. He's since disappointed when well beaten at Punchestown and the runner-up bounced back to score on softer ground at Killarney. Jim Will Fix It is the form pick on his victory at Clonmel in March but he's been a little disappointing in two subsequent runs even allowing for quicker conditions. Laffan Island bounced off the fast ground to win easily at Sligo but these are better class opponents and it's WHATS ON THE MENU, who showed dramatic improvement to beat a strong field over three miles at Punchestown, who gets the nod as this shorter trip should cause no problems.
