REITERATION returned to action with a hard-fought success over Captainofthefleet and Bea Remembered at the Curragh and with both placed horses running well subsequently the form looks decent, especially as the winner idled in front. Purple Heart got off the mark at the sixth time of asking in his first season and though he'll be better for his reappearance behind Duchess Of Foxland at the Curragh the form hasn't worked out too well. Keraloun appeared to find Dundalk's 1m3f stretching his stamina and this looks more his trip while Buy Back Bob won very easily over a mile on polytrack and should find races this season. Top Spin has been staying on over a mile in both runs this term and this longer trip plus first-time blinkers should aid his cause.
