Verdict

Though turned over when odds on at Punchestown last time, CAVALLINO is well worth another chance given the promise he showed when third on debut in this sphere at Tramore in December. God Help Us made an encouraging start to his career here last month and gets the nod for forecast purposes ahead of Born To Rule and Estepona Sun.
