Verdict

KNOCKMAOLE BOY has proved a revelation for Gordon Elliot and there was a lot to like about the way he swooped to win over an inadequate-looking seven furlongs here on Tuesday. If anything, he is sure to appreciate the extra furlong on offer and it would be no surprise to see him defy a 6lb penalty, providing the race hasn't come too soon. English raider Be Kool, Remarkable Lady and Ace of Diamonds are also of interest despite potentially tricky draws, whilst last year's winner, Total Demolition, and Clonard Street are also live contenders at likely bigger prices.
  1. Knockmaole Boy
  2. Remarkable Lady
  3. Clonard Street
