Verdict

Craftsman was just touched off at Gowran on his introduction then had few problems seeing off The Panhandler on heavy ground at Listowel. He'll improve again as will Intensical, who looked well suited to this trip when scoring at Roscommon. HIDDEN OASIS won a Galway maiden by 10 lengths before tackling an extra furlong in a Listowel nursery where he was caught close home by Mekong River. This isn't much easier but his overall form just gives him the edge. Ava Star looks well enough treated and she's another who will be suited by dropping back to this trip. 3.15
