Verdict

KNIGHTSONE is still improving and won a shade cosily at Roscommon, despite veering across the track in the closing stages. He looks more than capable of defying a penalty if keeping a straight course this time. Araku Valley has run three times in the UK and produced his best effort last time when chasing home Oscar Hoof at Market Rasen. He should go well but a bigger threat may come from Some Officer, who hasn't been beaten far the last twice. The faster ground is an unknown, however. Black Lemonade probably has a bit of scope and a market move for newcomers Mister Bungle or Yeats Lodge would probably be significant.
