In depth

Verdict

Rosaflora made a reasonable start in a mares' bumper at Listowel in September, though the form hasn't worked out particularly well. Byerley Babe has disappointed after scoring between the flags in March but newcomer It's High Time is by Kalanisi out of a mare who won on the Flat so should have plenty of pace. GOLDBOY started favourite on his debut at Punchestown in April but could only plug on at the one pace. He's likely to be suited by quicker ground in future but providing the conditions aren't too bad he looks another bumper winner for the champion trainer.
