Verdict

Three-year-olds have a good recent record so King Oliver, who has been going well over the trip without quite managing to get there, is one to keep an eye on. Phebes Wish is definitely improving but has never won away from Dundalk and has been beaten on all starts beyond 6f. Enigma Code gained his first success on Turf over this course and distance last month then ran a fine race from his new mark at Fairyhouse. He's going well enough to be a threat though GREAT SOPRANO looks the one to be on. He looked a certain winner when tackling a mile at Gowran last time but was run out of it close home by Brown Butterfly, who was rated 9lb higher yet was receiving 3lb.
