Verdict

AMINABAD made a successful debut here in January and though penalised the form has already worked out well with the runner-up winning subsequently. Willie Mullins' charge should go in again though Rockingham Bay, who was beaten around five lengths, should get closer on the revised terms. Never Never was a further three lengths back and has since performed moderately. Off The Mark is by High Chaparral out of a winning jumper and is worth noting in the market.
