Verdict

Are Ya Right Chief won a maiden hurdle on heavy ground at Thurles in February and ran well enough in two subsequent starts over fences to suggest he'll win races this season. Stablemate TOUCH THE EDEN looks a better bet today, however, as he looked a bright prospect when chasing home Foxrock on his debut over fences at Fairyhouse and the winner has since gone well in a Grade 1. You Must Know Me, who was beaten 22 lengths into third in this last year, ran very well in a tough Aintree handicap last month so has to be respected along with Rogue Angel, a very good third in what looked a strong contest won by My Murphy at Fairyhouse though just behind Marlbrook on this track earlier. The latter will improve and is another nice long-term prospect.
