Verdict

Kalico Kalista's previous efforts under Rules have left a bit to be desired but she's been in fair form between the flags. Kick Start was just starting to struggle when falling at Fairyhouse on New Year's Day but he has claims on an earlier second at the same course and Gold Not Silver ran his best race so far under today's claimer when second at Limerick last month. LUDDSDENENE may have got a bit closer to Royal Flight at Down Royal on St Stephen's Day had he not been knocked sideways at the second-last. Paul Townend takes over the reins today and Philip Rothwell's charge is the most likely winner of this granted a clear round.
