Verdict

Shetland Bus was only just denied over C&D last summer and commands respected back from a layoff but the form of that contest hasn't been strong and he is opposed now. Diamond Turf has proved an expensive conveyance for his supporters so far but may come good before long. SOUTHERN NIGHTS was sent off favourite in a Wexford maiden hurdle recently and was still in front when he came down. A clear round here might be enough to get him on the board. The Second Coming and Lord Schnitzel are potential improvers upped in trip.
