Verdict

HOLD THE LINE has been narrowly beaten in strong maidens here and at Naas, where the winner Pay Day Kitten has won subsequently, and looks ready to gain his first success. Polished Rock weakened quickly over 1m2f at Leopardstown and this looks more his trip while Tommy Stack's newcomer Charlotte Rua is a half-sister to no less than six winners so is one to keep an eye on in the market.
