Verdict

WITHAM RIVER finished just ahead of the reopposing Manwal when second at Ballinrobe last time and is selected to confirm his narrow superiority over that Tracey Collins-trained 3-y-o and strike at the fifth time of asking. Star Official should also have a part to play under Colin Keane, while the well-bred Rayadiyr is a newcomer to keep a close eye on in the betting.
