Verdict

SHOURANOUR finished runner-up to Point Piper in what looked a strong Leopardstown maiden a couple of weeks ago and the half-brother to two useful winners will find this longer trip to his liking so is handed the vote. Danseur De Feu hasn't been able to find a finishing burst but a strong gallop could play to her strengths while Minister Of Mayhem improved when stepped up to this trip at Roscommon and can make further progress. Manhattan Swing produced his best run on Polytrack and didn't appear to enjoy softer ground at Navan last time but Wee Wily Wilfords is entitled to improve for his run over a mile at Navan where he showed plenty of promise.
