Verdict

Napa Starr was in good form on fast ground last summer and has been running reasonably well over timber recently. He's on the short-list while Duc De Savoie is much better than he showed at the Curragh last time. Trans City has been hit with an 8lb rise for scoring at Down Royal and this is tougher while Dubawi Star's only success so far came on Polytrack at Dundalk. TOBAR NA GAOISE made a belated racecourse debut at Lepardstown last month where he confirmed home promise with a victory in a decent maiden. There's more to come from Jim Bolger's colt and he should be good enough to keep his unbeaten record.
