Verdict

A couple of Denis Hogan-trained runners catch the eye especially Down Royal winner, BAHLWAN who continued in good form with a battling effort at the Curragh earlier this month. The four-year-old is clearly improving and can get the better of stablemate Gopsies Daughter who is still regularly on the premises at the business end of proceedings. Tie A Yellow Ribbon on stable debut and C&D second of 15 last month, Associate Rock deserve further consideration.
