In depth

Verdict

After landing a point-to-point at Dromahane in April, Rough Justice has been a short-priced favourite in both starts for Willie Mullins but has failed to fire, though his form still looks better than that of The Ramblin Kid and Railway Tommy. The latter's stablemate King Blue is a half-brother to six winners and wouldn't need to be a world beater to add to the collection but it's SHEMSHAL who really catches the eye on breeding. Tony Martin's newcomer is a full brother by Dalakhani to a French 1m2f Group 3 winner and out of a mare who won a Listed contest so should certainly have enough pace to make a winning start to his career.
