The progressive gelding RUSSIAN DIAMOND
can continue in good form here. The Emmet Mullins-trained six-year-old followed up solid efforts in a Galway bumper and on maiden hurdle debut at Down Royal in December when finishing second of nine runners in a Naas novices' contest when last seen in February. The biggest threat may come in the shape of Recent Revelations
, last seen finishing in the frame in the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham festival in March. Rewritetherules
for trainer J J Hanlon and the Jessica Harrington-trained Barrington Court
should not be underestimated.
