Verdict

Malayan Mist deserves her shot at this grade though this will be much tougher than when beating Deire Na Sli at Ballinrobe. Unity looks the better of David Wachman's pair as she has been competing at a much higher level while Adilapour should find this less taxing then when well beaten in a Curragh Group 3 last time. Last Crusade, who finished just in front of him that day, has since been last of four at Navan and his stablemate, the lightly-raced Jackaroo, may come out on top this time. BOB LE BEAU should be earning some black type before long having finished runner-up in two Listed contests and a Group 3 in his last four starts. His victory in a Curragh handicap last month was gained at around this trip and Fran Berry can see him home.
