Verdict

It took WHATEVER JACKSAYS an age to find any sort of form but once he won at Wexford in April there was no stopping him and his front-running soon has his rivals struggling. Too Scoops was over five lengths behind him at Listowel last month and though the shorter trip may be in his favour he's unlikely to catch the winner, who can defy his penalty and score again. Passage Vendome ran poorly on heavy ground at Ballinrobe in July but made amends with a smooth success at Bellewstown and has scope for further progress. Paul Carberry rides Landenstown Lady for the first time and his patient style could bring about some improvement in the mare, though the ground could pose a problem.
