Verdict

Captain Moonlite looked certain to win soon when narrowly beaten by Princess Aloof at Sligo but has disappointed subsequently. Caso Do Lago ran his best race so far behind Candy Apples at Bellewstown though that was over the minimum trip. Myamo was unfancied on her debut over a mile at Bellewstown but ran better than expected, staying on nicely at the finish. She'll be a threat with normal progress but this shouldn't take too much winning and ROYAL FOCUS has been put in at a realistic claiming price and could make a successful start.
