Verdict

Spring Focus probably just found dropping back to a mile against him at Galway and though running well enough to be considered he's now 10lb higher than his winning effort. NANCY ROSE looked a progressive filly when scoring over this trip on soft ground in May so it was a surprise to see her over 7f at the Curragh on Sunday. She'll be better for that run and is taken to get back on the winning trail. Gone Viral is another making a quick reappearance after that Curragh meeting and he ran a fine race to finish runner-up over a mile, staying on strongly and suggesting this trip would be within his compass. Jim Bolger has been unable to get a race out of Muileata though it hasn't been for the want of trying and all of her recent placed efforts have been on fast ground so tonight's conditions could enable her to finally get off the mark.
