Verdict

John Oxx will have been delighted to have taken the open on Leopardstown's big day on Saturday so his Nayef filly Alafzara is one to keep an eye on. However, it's about time COLOUR BLUE was losing her maiden tag and though there are plenty of runners here her overall form, especially when not beaten far in a Curragh Group 3, is far superior to these rivals. Kevin Prendergast tries Trikala in a first-time visor after a couple of disappointing runs and Dermot Weld's newcomer Vote Often, who is a full sister to Group 1 winner Proportional, is another to note on her debut.
