Verdict

After finishing first past the post in a Fairyhouse bumper only to be disqualified, winning point-to-pointer Rogue Angel easily landed a Galway maiden before disappointing against better company. He makes his handicap debut and could be better than these but has to concede weight all round and may find ALF WRIGHT too strong on these terms. He easily won over fences in October and probably just needed the run on his reappearance over hurdles last month and looks well treated on the balance of his form. Vics Canvas ran very well behind Tennis Cap at Naas over a trip too short so has to enter the equation as does Followmeuptocarlow, who was a bit disappointing behind Happy New Year at Punchestown having beaten the winner on his previous start. Special Token is by no means out of this with her low weight as she is 16lb better off than over fences.
