I'm curious... what would be difficult about it? From first inspection, it looks to me like the norms on both sides will be well balanced, the algebraic poly has very nice root properties, the skewness on both sides is close to 1 and even the resultant has a couple of nice small factors. I haven't actually tried sieving, but in theory this one looks like a winner to me...
