The Sportsman's Verdict
Sharjah has been running consistently well on the all-weather in recent months and he could make the frame if transferring that form to the turf. That said, preference is for ROYAL ADMIRAL, who looks sure to get off the mark soon based on his narrow defeat at Dundalk earlier in the month. The shortlist is completed by Dream Point, Loudest Whisper and Rockfish.
