Verdict

EYE OF THE STORM was narrowly beaten by Missunited in a similar race at Galway earlier this month but that was his first start since May and he's since scored comfortably at Listowel. The pair are closely matched again but the former has much more scope and can take this before going on to better things. Unaccompanied can never be ruled out though she's much better on softer ground while Sir Ector is more at home over a longer trip.
