Verdict

DARKENED took his form to a whole new level over hurdles when successful at Kilbeggan a month ago and on that evidence, he ought to be able to do some damage from this Flat mark. Star Official, Tudor Manor and Shimla Rolann are a couple of potential threats.

  1. DARKENED (IRE)
  2. STAR OFFICIAL (IRE)
  3. TUDOR MANOR (IRE)
