The Sportsman's Verdict
SILK AND SAND finished a good third on her racecourse debut last month behind Gemma's Flame at Fairyhouse, where she stayed on well in the closing stages. This looks a winnable contest on paper and she can make good use of her fillies allowance. Final List showed some promise when fifth on his first start at the Punchestown Festival behind Kalum River and should be able to improve for that experience, while Gateway To Europe, who was down the field in that same contest, has improved enough since to make him a threat.
