Verdict

KOREAN was one of the busiest horses in training last year with 19 runs. His one success came over timber at Thurles in November but he had two chasing victories to his credit in France and looks on a fair enough mark to take this. Gentleman Jim wore blinkers for the first time at Punchestown a fortnight ago and they certainly had the desired effect, though he's suffered in the weights as a consequence with a 9lb rise. Gold Cygnet has more scope than most of these and produced a very good effort when runner-up to Waltzing Tornado at Tramore, only his third start over fences. It's a surprise to see Burnt Oil Babe racing over the minimum trip as she's been going really well over much further and may struggle to go the pace.
