Verdict

Morning With Ivan had Kingdom and Smoker behind when scoring over 1m2f at Leopardstown and though the latter pair are better off at the weights and will appreciate the longer trip the winner won with a bit in hand and can confirm the form. Flameseeker ended his first campaign with a fine victory in testing ground at Listowel while Burnt Sienna has to be respected as she wasn't beaten far by Morning With Ivan over a mile at Gowran and is much better off at the weights. PAY DAY KITTEN makes a quick reappearance after her victory at Naas. She was narrowly beaten by Kingdom on her only juvenile start and looks the type to go on to better things so gets the vote.
