Verdict

He may have disappointed at odds-on at Punchestown last time but this can go to PALOMA BLUE. Henry De Bromhead's charge is yet to finish out of the places in four starts so far, including a highly promising second to Fayonagh at Punchestown in a Grade 1 in April. With Davy Russell retaining the ride he looks set to deny recent Fairyhouse runner-up Quick Grabim and Impact Factor, who found only the exciting Getabird too good at Punchestown earlier in the month.
