Verdict

SHALAMAN has been unfortunate not to have added to July's success at Leopardstown and though having run only once on Polytrack he is progressing enough to gain the second victory of his career. Manuka has yet to win a race in 13 starts but came very close at Tramore and with a strong gallop likely he'll be difficult to keep out of the frame. Lonan has a victory over a slightly shorter trip here to his credit and though disappointing when fancied at Leopardstown in June his overall form puts him right in the picture. Fairylike has plenty of weight but has been performing with credit at a higher level on Turf.
