Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won four of the last five with some useful performers but this season's contingent will all need to step-up. As Good As Gold is well exposed but both Qualify and Cocoon caught the eye in the race won by stablemate Words at the Curragh last month and it would be a shock if they didn't show massive improvement. New Alliance makes a quick reappearance after a fair run at the Curragh on Sunday and there's much more to come from her as there is from Fairyhouse winner Agnes Stewart, who produced a very impressive performance when looking in need of the run. Jack Naylor has been steadily improving and easily won a Roscommon maiden while Raydara followed a very impressive debut behind Words with a smooth success over this track and trip. MARSALI looked to have plenty to do from a poor draw at Fairyhouse but couldn't have been more impressive. She'll have learnt plenty from that and will prove difficult to beat.
