Verdict

ROUGH JUSTICE should have little trouble gaining his first success over timber as he was travelling well for most of the way before run out of it by Jarob over 3m at Bellewstown. He hasn't exactly been consistent but his overall form is stronger than that of his main rivals including Vision Du Coeur, who hasn't proved he stays the trip in this sort of ground. Hurry Kitty could be more of a threat as she stayed on very strongly to lead right on the line over 2m1f at Killarney and the easier going will also be in her favour. Quiet Account showed a bit of improvement at Perth but will need to step up a gear.
