Verdict

BELISARIUS showed enough on his debut to be sent off a long odds-on chance over the course and distance two weeks ago. He didn't enjoy the best of runs and took a long time to warm to his task but should now be ready to do himself justice. Joseph picks him over the Montjeu newcomer Adjusted, though the latter looks just the type for a back-end maiden on testing ground. Evason showed he handles this sort of ground and trip with a very good run at Tipperary where he looked in need of the experience while Vector Force only just failed to catch Intensical over 7f at Roscommon and the longer trip is certain to be in his favour. Abushamah was behind that day and looks held while Dunure Harbour faces a stiff task on his debut in these conditions.
