Verdict

DECLARATIONOFPEACE came here for a maiden in May and landed the odds very easily. He's been plying his trade in top-class company on Turf, including a couple of decent runs behind stable companions in Group 1 races at the Curragh, so this represents a huge drop in class. Boragh Steps beat a smart opponent in Solar Wave at Fairyhouse before placed at the Curragh then met trouble at the start in a Listed race at Newbury and never got going. Pak Army's only fair run came when placed on this track back in April while Kimono Girl hasn't done much wrong and is back over her best trip. Tintoretto was a 33/1 chance on his debut at Tipperary though was going on nicely once getting the hang of the job but Mrs Hitchcock has shown nothing.
