Verdict

Stoney made a reasonable debut on heavy ground at Roscommon and with that under his belt looks certain to get involved. Patrick Mullins was on board when Colgrave Sound made his debut at Gowran last month and the combination went well. It will be a surprise if they don't get involved but the vote goes to SECRET VALLEY. Denis Hogan's mare didn't show much on her debut at Punchestown but that was a much better race than this and the stable are very adept at bringing one back after a break. Curvacious hasn't raced since 2010 but showed plenty of potential and the betting should tell us more while the stoutly bred Heath Hunter could prove best of the newcomers.
