Verdict

Heavy ground most certainly suited Talitha Kum when she trounced a field of maidens over this trip at Listowel and though having a bit to find the going gives her a chance. VIZTORIA raced on similar ground on her debut at Naas in July and could hardly have been more impressive, scoring by over 7l. A couple of subsequent winners came out of the race and she's taken to improve and land this nice prize. Boston Rocker is a genuine Listed class performer on this sort of ground and it will be a surprise if he isn't involved in the finish though Snow Queen looks more of a threat as she ploughed through the mud to score over 7f here before finding the Moyglare much too tough. Tennessee Wildcat wasn't beaten far in a Group 3 over the C&D last time but may find the ground too testing.
