Verdict

Chicago Girl has the best form but continues to disappoint and may have to wait for a handicap to get off the mark. Aidan O'Brien tries Adjusted in blinkers after his disappointing run when odds-on here in April while First Sitting looked certain to appreciate this sort of trip when chasing Illusive home at Leopardstown. No Wunder hasn't done much wrong and was beaten by a progressive type in Sea The Lion here but Sindarban disappointed when long odds-on at Wexford. Most of the aforementioned are capable of winning races but are much of a muchness so a chance is taken with Jim Bolger's newcomer VERY INTENSE, who is from a very smart family and will know his job.
