Verdict

Freescape comfortably landed a maiden here before well beaten in the Super Sales Race at the Curragh. Poetic Light was always travelling like a winner over a mile at Bellewstown and was well in the lead at this trip but Militry Decoration has been looking one-paced on soft ground. Verbitude is the type to do better now in a handicap but Roscommon debut winner Painting Pictures appears to have gone backwards. The latter's stable companion Bonnie Baugh has gradually improved and overcame a tardy start with a fair run here last month but the vote goes to JUST SHERRY. Johnny Feane's filly hadn't shown much before her nursery debut at Down Royal where she made most of the running until caught close home by Magic Sea with a subsequent winner back in third.
