Verdict

Aidan O'Brien had been trying for some time to get a race out of the well-connected BEACH OF FALESA and the daughter of Dylan Thomas finally came good at Leopardstown on Thursday with a smooth victory. She's been raised 8lb by the assessor but as she can run with a 5lb penalty she's well handicapped and can follow-up. Vedani scrambled to victory in a Curragh maiden before just touched off in a handicap there last month. She's on the upgrade but connections won't be pleased with a 6lb rise in the weights. Equity Swap won twice over 1m2f before finding 1m4f just stretching his stamina at the Curragh where he was caught on the line by Shamiran. He's another progressive type who will take some beating and though Voleuse De Coeurs was disappointing at Cork last time her earlier form puts her in with a shout.
