Verdict

Teocht disappointed on his comeback at Leopardstown but had won at the same track in October and is not easily dismissed. Breathe Easy and Azurite are winners on the Polytrack and the latter steps up in trip for this. Waver is another who scored at Dundalk last season and he can figure back on fast ground but Eighteen Summers has recorded only modest efforts either side of winning over course and distance. Henry Higgins is 11lb higher than when scoring at Leopardstown on his latest start on the Flat and preference is for the lightly-raced URBAN MOON, a winner at Navan last month and expected to show further improvement today.
