Verdict

Joseph O'Brien tried to make all on League Of Nations at Dundalk a couple of weeks ago but couldn't quite hold off Caged Lightning. He'll strip fitter here and the longer trip will suit. Ghaamer looked in need of the experience on his debut at Leopardstown in October and didn't get going until the race was all over. He's the type to make a very nice three-year-old and must be kept on the right side. MANALAPAN was an unconsidered 25/1 chance when beaten three quarters of a length by Ruler Of The World at the Curragh with the remainder well beaten. That was a very promising introduction as the winner is well regarded and he's taken to go one better. Sophisticated Heir will prove a big threat if able to repeat his comeback effort when not far behind the useful Fortify at Cork.
