Verdict

BIG BREAK, a Group 3 winner here a year ago, has had little racing this campaign and, after two runs at Group 1 level, was a bit disappointing when beaten by Sruthan in a Tipperary Group 3 last month. That's still smart form, however, and Bold Thady Quill was behind along with Wannabee Better, who franked the form at Naas subsequently when Mizzava was runner-up and Romantic Stroll behind. Mizzava looks held but should still go well and could provide the main threat. The consistent Boston Rocker is better known as a sprinter and has scored just once in 14 starts and tackles this trip for the first time. Francis Of Assisi has won twice on heavy going and will have found the ground much too quick on his return from a long break at the Curragh.
