Verdict

HOME SECRETARY missed most of last year but has been gradually getting back to form and followed his victory here with a fine effort on a return visit where he would have finished much closer but for being impeded. He gets the vote as Daliyan looked suited to soft ground when scoring at Limerick before disappointing at Ballinrobe. Hawkswood looked a smart prospect when completing a double here early last year but it's a bit of a concern that he hasn't been seen since March, which was his first run since last May. Gun Shoot has been inconsistent but has dropped to a very fair mark if anywhere near her best.
