Verdict

This step back up in trip could be just the ticket for CHAMP ROYAL, who was a creditable third on his handicap debut at Navan last month and a 3 lb rise for that effort is fair. Something Sweet can also be expected to benefit from moving back up in distance on the back of her encouraging Leopardstown effort and she is next on the list. Pale Blue Dot and Earths Furies are others to consider.

  1. CHAMP ROYAL (FR)
  2. SOMETHING SWEET (IRE)
  3. PALE BLUE DOT (FR)
