Verdict

Like A Diamond has improved generously for this new yard but has shot up more than a stone for recent wins at Roscommon and over this C&D. He should remain competitive but might just be collared this time. ALFRED WEGENER meanwhile had a good bit in hand when improving himself to win at Limerick last time and still looks well treated despite his rise. End Play showed more last time here and join likely pacesetter Ciankyle on the shortlist.
  1. Alfred Wegener
