Ask Vic had looked a smart prospect when landing her opening races but didn't jump with any fluency at Bellewstown and will need to do better. Well Tuned was receiving 11lb from BEACH OF FALESA when beating her just under 2l over this trip at Limerick. The runner-up doesn't look the heartiest of battlers but with a good weight pull she should reverse the form and take this. Do Na Paisti did well to beat Indian Fairy at Downpatrick but had her limitations exposed in a better race at Galway.
