Timeform pick out their three best bets from Naas on Wednesday…
“…overcame trouble to win a Down Royal maiden recently and is open to further progress…”
Timeform on Rockview Spirit
A big-field maiden that can go to MY LAUREATE, who is turned out again quickly after ruining her chance by proving far too free after two months off in a listed race at Leopardstown at the weekend. She remains with plenty of potential judged on her Fairyhouse debut. Whirlygig looks an intriguing newcomer for Gordon Elliott, while a lot better was expected from the weak-finishing Afar on her debut at the Curragh.
ROCKVIEW SPIRIT overcame trouble to win a Down Royal maiden recently and is open to further progress now switching to handicap company, so could be the way to go. Heavenly Rainbow and So Familiar both showed they can be very competitive off their marks last time and head the dangers.
DUMOURIEZ continues to go the right way, never nearer than the neck he was beaten when third at Killarney last time, and is surely up to winning a race of this nature, 3 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings this time round. Power of Now is another who has shown plenty of ability and ought to have a say, while Egrecio is an interesting newcomer representing top connections, so needs a market check.
