Verdict

Low numbers are generally best so Wateed faces a difficult task after a couple of ordinary runs at Cork. Nakara is slightly better drawn and caught the eye with a fair debut at Tipperary so she can improve and get involved. Taanif has run poorly since a decent run behind War Command at Leopardstown so, unless there's something decent amongst the newcomers, SNIPER should lose his maiden tag as he's been competing at a much higher level and was by no means disgraced despite finishing last of six in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh a week ago.
