Verdict

Face Facts was awarded the race over the C&D on the disqualification of Bondage. He's won three times all at around this trip on good ground but he's shot up the ratings after that latest run. First Impressions ran poorly at Galway but was going well previously and it may prove wise to forgive that effort. King Ali has dropped to a fair mark and did much better at Galway last week but Missgiloney continues to climb the weights without winning. BEAU MICHAEL gained the 13th success of his career at Naas on Monday and could hardly have been more impressive. With both trip and ground perfect and Keith Donoghue able to claim half of his 6lb penalty back he can go in again.
