Verdict

Jim Bolger is doing his best to promote his freshman stallion Intense Focus, who has two of his offspring entered here. Kevin Manning has chosen Heart Focus over Rock Focus but both are entitled to be speedy. COACH HOUSE started odds-on for his debut at the Curragh but found Fast In The Wind just too strong. Time may tell that was a very good effort and compensation awaits. Treadstone, a half-brother to a 6f two-year-old winner, could prove best of the remainder.
