Encompassing, by Montjeu out of Coronation Stakes winner Sophisticat, has been an expensive failure so far having started a short-priced favourite on all three starts including on his return behind Reiteration at the Curragh. My Point Exactly didn't progress after a promising start behind Crystal Gal at the Curragh so ROCKY ELSOM looks the one to be on. John Oxx's son of Rock Of Gibraltar made a highly satisfying reappearance behind Mister Carter in what looked a strong maiden at Leopardstown and looks certain to lose his maiden tag before long.
