Verdict

GREANTA had shown virtually nothing before stepping up to this trip on soft ground at Cork last week but she had little difficulty landing that nursery and a 7lb rise shouldn't prevent a quick follow-up. Hannah's Magic was beaten just over three lengths in fourth and, with an 8lb pull, should get closer but The Panhandler ran moderately at the same meeting. Greeneyed Monster scrambled home on fast ground at Killarney in June and it remains to be seen how he acts on this surface but Focussed looks a threat as he'll love the ground and ran very well behind the useful Hidden Oasis at Naas on Sunday. Ubiquitous Mantle has also to be considered though her only success came on fast ground.
