Verdict

Toccata Blue has been going well on Polytrack but has climbed the weights without winning since successful at the Curragh in July. He was narrowly beaten by Indian Landing at Dundalk last time and the weights are the same. Andy Oliver tries the disappointing Shipyard in blinkers while Reckless Lad is 9lb higher than his victory at Dundalk in February. Battleroftheboyne has gone up 3lb despite being beaten in his three runs so far this season so the vote goes to FOCUSSED. Brendan Duke's charge has won three times in his career, all over this specialist trip on soft ground with Kevin Manning on board, so the stage looks set for another success.
