Verdict

Several of these enter the fray in good spirits none more than Jumbo Steps, who didn't lose his maiden tag until his 24th start then completed a double. He's shot up the weights and may do better when reverting to the all-weather where he's 13lb lower. His trainer, Johnny Levins, has acquired DASHWOOD from Anthony Carson and a chance is taken that a change of surroundings will work the oracle as he's been beaten a couple of times since scoring at Chepstow. He's on a very fair mark here and Ross Coakley's claim is a major bonus. Tsar Paul was well behind Jumbo Steps at Fairyhouse but returned to form on faster going at Down Royal where he had Valley Queen a length behind and would be a threat if the ground dries out. Like Magic and Ningaloo Reef continue to look a few pounds high and Sophies Echo, who ran twice at Galway last week, is 13lb higher than her last success.
