Verdict

Ongenstown Lad gained a surprise victory in a novice event at Ffos Las in April but showed that was no fluke with a very good run in a tough handicap at Down Royal last month. Maddoxstown showed his first ability for some time behind Van Wyck at Clonmel where first-time blinkers appeared to work while Phar From Fashion showed her first promise behind Fuschia Belle at Limerick. WESTERN ISLAND is still a maiden after 20 starts but looks ready to gain that elusive first victory after a much improved effort behind Chapter Eleven at Ballinrobe where he only surrendered the advantage on the run-in.
