Verdict

Desert Roe would definitely be one to keep an eye on if getting a run from his reserve spot as he's improved with every run. Try It Sometime landed a Tramore handicap in April when well supported but has run poorly in two subsequent outings while Kinneagh Cross, who was in good form last summer, has blinkers fitted after a poor return to action at Clonmel. Castaway Island was making his handicap debut when producing an encouraging effort at Clonmel and further progress will see him in the firing line but MAYA QUEST won so well on that track that he's taken to go in again with his 7lb rise being almost taken care of by his rider's claim. The market should be watched for clues to the remainder in what is a poor contest.
