Verdict

This may take little winning and THE CROONER may be good enough although his apparent lack of gears is a concern. Nevertheless, he meets nothing of the calibre of opponent he has met in his two previous runs in this country. Grey Diamond looked destined for better when landing his bumper but clearly the ability is there if the race should develop to his liking. A bigger threat may come from another bumper winner, Chapmanshype, who beat a good field at Punchestown and is potentially better than his last run in a weak event suggests.
  1. The Crooner
  2. Chapmanshype
  3. Grey Diamond
