Verdict

VICTORY SONG, who started a short-priced favourite on his debut over 1m5f at Tipperary, didn't appreciate the heavy ground and can make amends under today's conditions. Tonabrocky probably needed his recent run at Leopardstown, his first since April, and there's every chance he'll make further progress so must pose a threat. The filly Razia wasn't fancied on her opening run at Sligo and ran accordingly but she'll have come on for the experience and her allowance will help. Cape Glory made his debut at Dundalk last September and caught the eye but the fact he hasn't been seen subsequently is off-putting.
