ROCKVIEW DIAMOND has done nothing wrong and was unfortunate to be caught on the line by Crimson Sunrise at Navan. He can gain compensation here though El McGlynn, Nini Ok and Kingdomforthebride all ran well in a very strong Tipperary maiden won by Somasach and the former in particular should go well. Gin Rummy would have finished closer at Leopardstown but for running wide at the bend while Rambling Rake has plenty of pace in his pedigree and is one to note on his debut.
