Verdict

Star Power obliged over two miles on the Polytrack at Dundalk and Jim Bolger's gelding is likely to be popular but a heavy defeat on turf puts us off and we think that TORETTO can produce a shock. Richard Brabazon's gelding certainly should have no issues with the trip as he won a juvenile hurdle at Uttoxeter, and was third in a recent handicap hurdle at Ballinrobe. Moveable Asset has a much higher rating than our selection under that code though he doesn't appear to be quite so convincing on faster ground. Manuka is often well backed and that was again the case at the Curragh. Luke Dempsey's claim is utilised in order to take a valuable 7lb out of the saddle. Traveller's Tales stayed on to be fifth in an amateur riders race at the Curragh and the former Richard Hannon inmate is now 6lb lower than her previous winning mark.
