Verdict

Easy Vic continues to frustrate and one victory in 36 starts says it all. Tulsa Jack is progressing but makes his handicap debut in what is a tough race while Stolberg also faces a stiff task with a 7lb rise for landing an amateurs' event at Limerick. MAGICAL MOON ran very well behind Greatness here on Wednesday and stepping up to this trip for the first time could do the trick. He's yet to win a race in 27 starts but hopefully can break his duck here. Down Time is only a four-year-old and the assessor has been hard on him with a 12lb rise for his very easy victory at Kilbeggan.The Parishioner was engaged in the 3.10 here yesterday so that result should be monitored.
