Xsquared ran poorly at Gowran last week after a fine victory here two days earlier and this will be his fourth start this month. Russian Soul is improving rapidly and doesn't look harshly treated for his maiden success at Down Royal. Atticus Finch didn't enjoy the soft ground at Leopardstown after his comfortable victory here and Go On Murt hated the heavy going at Galway after completing a double here. The latter looks one for the short-list but there are several progressive three-year-olds in the line-up and DANZERINI could be the best of them. Mick Halford's charge showed real promise on his debut at Fairyhouse and though having to battle to land the odds at Limerick gave the impression there was much more to come and he gets the nod. Fionnuar has her first start on Polytrack but has to be of interest having scored on her debut while Curia Regis has run very well on all four starts on this track and looks nicely weighted.
