Verdict

Sherco Sports lost his maiden tag at Sligo last month but didn't appreciate much faster ground at Limerick a few days later. Golden Palm came good in a Killarney maiden and a mark of 108 doesn't appear excessive but while John The Soldier is in fine form and will enjoy the trip his best form has been on faster ground, a remark that also applies to Ahorsecalledmolly, who is well handicapped. Vintage Supreme has yet to prove he stays this far but DICK DUNDEE will relish both trip and ground and though behind John The Soldier last time today's conditions are in his favour and he gets the nod. Corrick Bridge hinted at a revival here last month and is well handicapped if anywhere near back to his best.
