Verdict

Mezogiorno won at Leopardstown with Carenza back in third before losing out to Miller Beach in a tight finish at Naas. Amazing Star bounced back to form with an easy win at Leopardstown but has been raised 9lb for his trouble while Six Silver Lane went close over track and trip last month but this looks tougher. Illusive is another Leopardstown winner having won a maiden on his return from a lay-off. He may prove hard to beat but a chance is taken on INTENSIFIED, who was making a late seasonal debut when second at Naas and looks well handicapped on that form.
