Verdict

Tony Martin wastes no time in bringing out PYROMANIAC after his comfortable victory over Strandfield Lady at Leopardstown last week. That was over 1m2f but he finished with a flourish and the longer trip should suit so he can shrug off his penalty. Fran Berry was on board for that victory and also when Massini's Trap won easily at Ballinrobe. Joseph O'Brien takes the ride on the latter this time and the combination look certain to get involved. Hardstone had shown promise in maidens and was well supported on his handicap debut over 1m2f at Sligo but didn't run as well as expected. Benkei didn't enjoy testing ground at Roscommon after a very promising return to action at Navan and though All About Alfie is running well he's much better in on the all-weather.
