Verdict

In quite an intriguing race a chance is taken on Gordon Elliott's impressive Fairyhouse scorer CHOSEN MATE who won a 22-runner maiden with plenty in hand. Prince D'Aubrelle shook off a near three-year absence when making a winning hurdles bow back in May but another break since suggests he may still be difficult to train. Sinoria, like the aforementioned duo, hacked up in a maiden and rates another potentially smart prospect.
