Verdict

Henry De Bromhead has won two of the five renewals including with Sizing Europe in 2009. Darwins Fox won't match his achievements but looks a very useful addition to the chasing ranks and is progressing at a rate of knots if his easy victory in a Grade 3 at Roscommon is anything to go by, though he picks up a penalty. ART OF LOGISTICS will need to improve from his chasing debut victory at Gowran but there's every chance he will do so and, in receipt of 8lb, looks the one to be on. Saint Gervais followed a fine victory over Steps To Freedom at Killarney with a good second to the very useful Rebel Fitz at Galway and is by no means out of this while Six Stone Ned should win races this season and will love the conditions.
