Verdict

FROMAJACKTOAKING has been very disappointing in nurseries though he's never been beaten far and, as he should find this a little less taxing, he's handed the vote. Marvelous James has shown good speed over a mile on his two latest starts though he's looked one-paced at the business end while Fiftyshadesofred looked as though she needed further when finishing strongly over this trip at Sligo. Mrs Bean is only moderate but wasn't beaten far in a strong nursery at the Curragh last time while Fairy Path has a long absence to overcome.
