Verdict

Tofino Bay has a Grade 2 penalty to carry for his victory over Aupcharlie at Naas which may just hand the initiative to TERMINAL. The latter has been taking his time to find his feet over fences but there was much to like about his victory at Cork last time and, though facing a much tougher opponent, is progressing fast enough to gain his biggest victory so far. He's A Delight made a pleasing start over fences at Limerick but faces a couple of class acts here and Tillahow hasn't done enough to suggest he'll be good enough.
