Fairylike appeared to appreciate stepping up to 1m2f on fast ground when scoring as she liked at Leopardstown though the assessor has hit her with a 12lb rise, which looks excessive. The veteran Maundy Money has been in tremendous form on fast ground but is now on his highest mark since 2011 and Empresario, who was well behind him at Killarney, could turn the tables on this much more suitable ground. PRINCE JOCK had slipped to a winnable mark when making most at Hamilton. He hasn't had much racing over the past couple of years and with just a 5lb rise to contend with he can land this for Pat Shanahan. Measured Approval is another to have been given a big rise for his success at Killarney.
