Verdict

Andy Oliver complicates proceedings here by saddling three, all seemingly with decent chances. Risk Return hasn't been seen since beaten seven lengths into second at Navan last October but both Tax Reform and Conversational ran last week with preference just for the former, who couldn't cope with Lady O Malley at Ballinrobe but who had earlier run Sister Slew close at Galway. Dragon Fei made a very encouraging debut here last month and can't have been at her best when virtually tailed off at Wexford a couple of weeks later. LAPIS BLUE didn't show much on her debut but did much better behind Wannabee Better at Naas so, with further progress likely, can take this.
