Verdict

TALKING TOUGH confirmed the promise of his previous run when edged out late in the day at Roscommon 8 days ago and a repeat should see him firmly in the mix once more. Accessory is proving consistent and cam also feature. Caesar's Comet is also respected, whilst Drombeg Duke needs monitoring in the betting having switched yards.
