Verdict

ROUGH DIAMOND did well under the circumstances at Tipperary last time and is taken to build on that promise and notch a second C&D success. Independent Missy arrives at the top of her game and is likely to give another good account, while sole 3-y-o Bellagio Man appeals as a likely improver in handicaps for the Ger Lyons/Colin Keane combination.
