Verdict

Itsuptoyou is still a maiden after 15 career starts but couldn't have gone much closer when caught close home by Luke's Benefit at Punchestown. Reality Dose is also a maiden and has been beaten off lower marks than this so POPAFLORA looks the one to be on despite this being short of his best trip. Paul Rothwell's charge is a front-runner and galloped his rivals into submission over 2m4f at Punchestown so hopefully revering to the minimum trip won't be a problem. Torremuelle couldn't match strides with the selection last time but was up with the pace for most of the way and rates a threat but Yeoman was well beaten and looks held.
