Verdict

Johnny Murtagh will be hoping to get off the mark soon as a trainer and Dansili Dual is slipping to a mark he looks capable of going close from, especially under Luke Dempsey's claim. CONVERSATIONAL looks the one to beat after a couple of fine runs over a mile, the latest when encountering fast ground for the first time at the Curragh on Saturday. He'll take some beating though New Regalia caught the eye with a fine effort at Naas a fortnight ago and is improving enough to take a hand. Victor's Beach and Queen Of The Sand were both in good form on Polytrack when last seen though have absences to overcome while it's difficult to know what to make of Muizenberg Nights, who has yet to race on Turf.
