Verdict

Elsie had come up against very strong opposition before scoring here in May and looked just in need of the run on her reappearance at Tipperary. Shesafoxylady has made steady progress and went into many notebooks as one to follow when scoring impressively here two weeks ago. She'll come in for strong support but that could make the market for TOE THE LINE. John Kiely's youngster made a fine debut when beating No Cash Flow at Listowel last month and, as the runner-up has since come out and scored by 18l, the form looks outstanding and he can remain unbeaten. The remaining pair will need to have made great strides to get anywhere near a trio of promising types.
