Verdict

Rivers Edge caught the eye on her debut behind Obligada at Limerick where she stayed on nicely over that mile. Barry Crockett could only stay on at one pace behind Act Of Love at Down Royal but will have come on for the run and it's more than possible he can reverse form with the more exposed Suspect Device, who finished runner-up. Gemara is another stepping-up in trip after a fair run over 6f at Leopardstown but VAMIZI ISLAND gets the vote after staying on strongly behind Snow Mountain over 7f at Limerick where he looked certain to appreciate another furlong.
