Verdict

Blackstone is tried in first-time blinkers after a very poor run over 1m2f here earlier this month. Kings Ryker made a very encouraging debut at Roscommon but that was in September and he hasn't been seen on a racecourse since. Salute Of Approval has an even longer absence to overcome and was beaten a long way when runner-up at Killarney but Texas Rock has performed very well in both races to date though takes a big step-up in trip. Jim Bolger brings out FEACH AR AGAIDH very quickly after his very promising debut behind Leafcutter at Gowran on Sunday where he was staying on nicely over that 7f. He'll know more here and should go one better.
