Verdict

Toccata Blue would prefer another furlong but is reasonably weighted while Tarrsille doesn't win often enough and is on a high enough mark. GLobal Icon showed promise for Richard Hannon last season and will be better for his run here a couple of weeks ago but Legal Lyric has never raced at a trip as short as this and generally comes with a late run over 7f. Norville has gradually dropped to a winnable mark and Luke Dempsey's claim is a bonus but VIA BALLYCROY arrives in top form on fast ground and is probably still capable of scoring from an even higher mark than she runs off today. She had Greek Canyon behind when beating a huge field at the Curragh in May and should confirm the form with Ger Lyons' grey.
