Verdict

Andiamos was going nowhere when falling at Tramore and his rider may have to put up overweight. More Madness won over fences at Downpatrick but has never even been placed in eight starts over timber. New tactics were tried on Four Wives here last month and they couldn't have worked out better as she made all for a comfortable success over Vicalus. A 7lb rise means the runner-up should get closer without reversing the form. Invincible Don has won over two miles here on fast ground and wouldn't want any more rain but the one to be on is FRESH BY NATURE, who was having only her fifth start when slamming a big field over this trip at Gowran - there's much more to come.
