Verdict

PIN YOUR HOPES is just 1-17 overall, but he took a step firmly back in the right direction when a strong-finishing fourth in a first-time visor at Roscommon on Monday. If ridden more prominently back down in trip, the 4-y-o may prove the answer to this competitive handicap. Blue Shadow was runner-up in that at Roscommon race and should be on the premises once more, along with Annexation.
