Verdict

TRUE CONVICTION arrives less exposed than most and ran his best race to date despite hanging badly left late on when runner-up at Dundalk (1m) 4 days ago. It's no surprise to see him out quickly and he gets the nod to produce another bold bid in a race lacking depth. Is Fantastic rates the chief threat, ahead of Adamaris and Slieve Bearnagh.
