Romeo Is Bleeding has done most things right except get his head in front and won't get many better chances to get off the mark though the concession of 10lb to STAY IN MY HEART may prove beyond him. Charlie Swan's filly has been making good progress and only just failed to concede weight to Derrylea Girl in what looked a strong maiden at Tramore last time. Bowfinger has shown very little though did do slightly better at Kilbeggan last time.
