Verdict

Placed in nine of her 10 starts, you couldn't fault One True Love for consistency but she was easily picked off by Dr Funkenstein at the Curragh on Friday and there isn't a lot scope for improvement. Burren Trail was a beaten favourite on her reappearance at Limerick and Wayne Lordan, who has ridden her in all three starts to date, now switches to HARPIST and that's a hint worth taking. The latter has been well backed in both runs this term and is clearly thought capable of better. The four-year-old Surreal will probably be thereabouts again while Midfield General should appreciate the return to 7f and had Sticks And Stones and Secret Locket behind at Limerick on debut, though was more than three lengths adrift of runner-up One True Love.
