Verdict

John Constable has been at very short odds in all five starts to date and his latest run at Tipperary was probably his worst. He can't be selected with any confidence despite the fact his earlier form is far superior to that of his rivals. RESILIENCY was well supported to beat the odds-on Belisarius at Dundalk but couldn't match his finishing burst. He'll have learnt plenty from the run and is handed the vote to go one better. Corona Borealis and Asknotwhat don't look quite good enough but Jim Bolger runs a very interesting newcomer in Sparanai, who is by the same sire as the brilliant Dubai World Cup winner Animal Kingdom and out of a superbly bred mare.
