Verdict

MEASURED APPROVAL was Joseph O'Brien's only booked ride at the early declaration stage and will hopefully be worth sticking around for. He was on board for an earlier victory by the six-year-old and his mount has slipped to a winnable mark. Tsar Paul has a long losing spell to contend with though he ran his best race for some time at Naas last month and has a fair chance on that sort of form. Moonbi Creek has only won once and that was two years ago but he produced his best recent effort over this trip on soft ground at Gowran earlier this month and a repeat would see him in the frame. Datanarra showed her first sign of ability at Cork a week ago and if continuing that progress will be a major threat.
