In depth

Verdict

Red Rocks Point won his only start at Dundalk in September but is blinkered on his belated reappearance and probably has a bit to find to give 5lb to the filly EBEYINA. She beat a subsequent winner by 23 lengths on her debut at Cork in April and has Group 1 entries in the coming weeks. Jazz Girl has disappointed this term and was due to run at Down Royal yesterday and Warbird was well beaten at Naas last time, though has won both starts on this course.
