Verdict

LADY MEGA started favourite in the lucrative Rockingham Handicap at the Curragh won by Sir Maximilian, who runs in the previous race. She was never quite getting there but wasn't beaten far and can gain compensation in this lesser grade. She earlier had Tyerly Wonder just behind when they occupied the places on the same track and the latter must be a major threat at the revised weights. Shipyard was behind the selection in the Rockingham but Gary Halpin's claim should enable him to get involved while Harry Trotter and Sassaway are closely matched on their 1-2 over the course and distance in April.
