Verdict

This shouldn't take too much winning and if PEACE ACCORD is anywhere near as good as his pedigree suggests he's home and hosed. A son of Pivotal out of the Cheveley Park winner Embassy, he's related to a host of winners and should leave last year's initial run behind. Judies Child looked a certain future winner when runner-up at Tipperary at this time a year ago but has struggled to get her head in front and disappointed at Dundalk last time. Elastomer looked in need of the run at Tipperary a month ago and showed good speed at Dundalk last autumn while Horseware Express has shown the occasional glimmer of ability.
