Verdict

SOARING MONARCH returned with an improved showing to run out a ready winner at Roscommon back in May and he may well have more in the locker, so he gets the marginal vote in a competitive handicap. Sirjack Thomas, who took a big prize in impressive style earlier in the week, is an obvious danger under a penalty, while Lust should play a hand if he's not pestered in front.
