Verdict

Dandy Nicholls loves his trips to Ireland and Inxile, who won this in 2011, has a good record in the country though a penalty for his Listed victory at Tipperary gives him plenty to do against another UK raider, SWITCHER, who represents David O'Meara. She ended the campaign with a close second to Intense Pink in an Ascot Listed contest when trained by Tom Dascombe and went for 52,000gns at the Sales in December. The very progressive Srucahan opened this campaign with a fine victory in a Curragh handicap last Sunday and deserves a crack at this level while few made more improvement last season than Cape Of Approval, who completed a hat-trick in a tough Curragh handicap in September. An Saighdiur won the Paddy Power Sprint at the Curragh with a low weight and has his first start in a Listed contest.
