Verdict

There's little between these at the weights and though Toccata Blue just about comes out on top on ratings he's a rare entry over the minimum trip with his last success coming over a mile. MY GOOD BROTHER went up 7lb for an easy success over the course and distance last month but it didn't prevent another fine run at Tipperary and with, Ian Brennan's claim a bonus, he's taken to get back on the winning trail. Dorothy Parker will be having her first start on Polytrack but is progressing nicely as she showed at Tipperary last month and, if taking to the surface, she'll be difficult to beat. Tylery Wonder won a handicap over this trip at Bellewstown and has found longer trips beyond him in subsequent starts.
