Verdict

FOCUSSED scored twice in August but hasn't lived up to that form in subsequent starts. However, he's happy on today's ground and looks the one to be on as Coldstream is untested in the conditions. He showed some improvement at Dundalk last month but his only run on Turf was on very fast going. The Panhandler was inconsistent in his first campaign but his run behind Craftsman on heavy going at Listowel would give him an obvious chance. Paddy Mac looked one-paced last season and he's another who has yet to race on this type of going.
