Verdict

Minella Friend made a winning start to his career in a point at Dromahane last month and has to be of interest. Borussia showed a bit of promise on her debut at Limerick and the benefit was evident when she chased home The Winkler at Killarney. DEFINITE ROW started favourite for her debut between the flags at Dromahane earlier this month but looked in need of the experience. She's with the right man to get the best from her and she can make a winning start under Rules. Crofton Trail and Captain Hox have both shown promise and should be kept an eye on in the betting.
