Verdict

FOCUSSED races off the same mark as when only beaten half-a-length over track and trip last week and should take all the beating getting plenty of weight from last week's penalised Navan winner Beyond Brilliance, though Ana O'Brien's 7lb claim will help the Ballydoyle filly. Pit Stop wasn't disgraced on his handicap debut at Naas but is probably a few pounds to high while Mansuri has a bit to find with Beyond Brilliance on the form book. Muscle Beach as his stamina to prove over this trip.
