Verdict

Comedic Art hasn't run since scoring at Galway a year ago and may just need this before heading for the Festival again at the end of the month. Chicago likes soft ground but just failed to last out the trip when sent over 1m6f at Bellewstown a week ago. He'll be better suited by the distance of today's race and looks sure to take some beating. HAY POINT showed the benefit of an opening run behind Blue Corner when comfortably seeing off Warwick Avenue at Fairyhouse. There's plenty more to come from John Oxx's filly, who has an entry in a Group 3 next month, and she can continue the fine run of her stable and take this.
