Verdict

Dermot Weld has won four of the last six and Aidan O'Brien the other two. The former's Thunder Mountain will undoubtedly improve for his debut at the Curragh but was beaten a long way and the Ballydoyle entry LINE DRUMMER looks the obvious choice. He made a fine debut behind short-priced stablemate The Ferryman at Tipperary last week with that good yardstick Leitir Mor behind and this should prove within his capabilities. Dont Bother Me was a long way behind Alfonso De Sousa at Leopardstown on Thursday while Seussical missed the break on his debut at Leopardstown before making late headway over the mile.
