Verdict

Elleval has raced exclusively on soft ground and shown up reasonably well so has to be kept on the right side as he makes his debut on the surface. RAPID APPROACH started off over 7f at Leopardstown and dropped back a furlong here last week which didn't suit. He was noted staying on strongly to finish a close fourth behind Zalty and gets the vote over a more suitable trip. Levanto has to be a threat after an eye-catching debut at Leopardstown where she was going on well at the finish over that 7f. She'll have improved for that as will Zainda after her disappointing run when favourite on her debut at Leopardstown in August. St Jean, a half-brother to six winners including Famous Warrior, is a newcomer to keep an eye on.
