Verdict

Just 3lb separates the quartet on official ratings with the allowance of Morga's jockey taken into account. The latter is interesting dropped to sprint trips for the first time but she's up against some speedy sorts and a watching brief looks best. Talitha Kum and Curly Wee showed up well when fifth and seventh respectively in a competitive Curragh Premier handicap at the Irish Derby meeting behind Majestic Queen over 7f. However, both have scored over this trip, albeit on testing ground. VIA BALLYCROY was also in action over the weekend when 10th of 30 in the ultra-competitive Curragh handicap sprint won by Burn The Boats, by no means a bad effort as he was only 4l behind the winner. He'd previously taken a similarly tough Curragh sprint handicap and looks the one here with conditions sure to suit.
