Verdict

CITY SLICKER looked to be travelling easily on his debut at Navan last month but faded when the pressure was put on. That should have done him the world of good and he gets the vote ahead of Isle View, who ran better than expected on his debut under Rules at Down Royal. Lady Of Glencoe, runner-up in a Listed bumper at Limerick in April, has been a disappointment in subsequent starts but Grand Partner looks the type to do better despite being beaten a long way on his debut here in April.
