Verdict

Shaiyzar came with a late run though couldn't quite get to Shes No Joke here last month but didn't appear to have made the expected progress on a return visit a fortnight later. The Visitor hasn't been able to muster a finishing burst in his last two races over much shorter trips so stepping up could suit. LAVINIAD has shown up well in three starts on Turf and should be winning soon and though this is a big step-up in trip he can take it in his stride. Shield won a Leopardstown bumper in March and was runner-up over hurdles last month and he does have a decent performance in a Curragh maiden to his credit while Ballyadam Brook has won five races over jumps.
