Verdict

LASPARAS justified strong market support in the style of a useful prospect in a Tramore bumper early last month, so he's taken to maintain his unbeaten record under Rules now switching to obstacles. His stablemate Rayapour is open to plenty of improvement on his second start over timber and looks a big threat, while True Faith and Desir du Large are also feared.

  1. LASPARAS (FR)
  2. RAYAPOUR (FR)
  3. TRUE FAITH (IRE)
