Verdict

Tom McCourt: "I told Colin to make as much use of him as he could. He is best when he doesn't have something in front of him as he tends to lug in behind horses and it is a job getting him out. He is tough and he is going the right way. The plan is to come back here for the Joe McGrath Handicap in a few weeks' time. That (ground) is as slow as he would want it."

McCourt added of Kiss The Stars: "She ran a fine race and she may go for the Joe McGrath as well. The ground didn't do her any harm and she stays six furlongs."
