Verdict

Draco had looked moderate before a fine run behind Value At Risk at Leopardstown in December. Sunrae Shadow had been beaten much further by that winner on this track earlier though was making his debut and there should be more to come. Investmentsuccess made a bright start behind Killer Crow at Cork last month after attracting good support and will have benefited from the experience. MARINERO landed a point-to-point on his debut before chasing home Windsor Park in what looked a strong Leopardstown bumper in January. That could be good enough with progress virtually guaranteed. Willie Mullins has been unable to conjure up a victory for Bosman Rule but today's better ground may help the cause of Gold Cup winner Kicking King's half-brother. Buck Dancing was an impressive winner of his only start between the flags at Lisronagh last May and has the right pedigree for this.
