Verdict

Ralston Road travels from Ireland with top weight after landing what looked a decent Leopardstown maiden on ground with plenty of give. He can make further progress and should get involved though the concession of 8lb to GIOIA DI VITA may prove beyond him. Marco Botti's charge landed a Wolverhampton maiden in September and reappeared with a fine run behind the promising Theodore Gericault in a Pontefract handicap. Gabrial's Wawa looks a threat as he followed his Polytrack victories with a good run here where he led for most of the way over a furlong longer trip. Enzaal has never raced beyond 1m1f but was battling on over that trip at Goodwood last time. None of the remainder can be dismissed in an open handicap.
