Verdict

Realt Dubh is a high-class performer at his best but his jumping lets him down against strong opposition over the minimum trip, as it did when put in his place by DAYS HOTEL at Cork in December. The winner found 2m4f beyond him subsequently but is the only one of these regarded as a specialist two-miler and looks the one to be on. Call The Police has never raced over the minimum when tackling fences but did score over 2m2f at Thurles last month. He looks a big threat but Roi Du Maree was engaged in the Bobbyjo at Fairyhouse yesterday and this looks much too short for the Grand National entry.
