Verdict

Uleavemebreathless, runner-up in a Group 3 here last year, may not quite have the scope of some of these rivals but Tobann looked a very progressive filly when landing a maiden at Gowran impressively and can get involved. FORTIFY looked an improving type when scoring at Cork and though unable to cope with Talitha Klum at Naas he was conceding 8lb to the winner and time may tell that was an impossible task. He's handed the vote though Cougar Ridge will be a threat if able to recapture his best juvenile form. Pop Art had Moth behind when scoring at Naas in October and he's another to consider on his return to action.
