Verdict

Wot You Wearing was beaten a long way when fourth here on his debut while Merrijig’s yard has had a couple of winners on the Flat this month. But a couple of these are point-to-point winners in Ireland debuting under Rules with dual winner THE GALAHAD KID preferred to Dame De Fortune having joined Fergal O’Brien’s in-form yard.
