Verdict

Tahaany was sent off at long odds on her Leopardstown debut for Dermot Weld but didn't shape too badly behind Sudirman and the daughter of Raven's Pass can be expected to improve considerably for the experience. Similar comments apply to PERHAPS, very much the Ballydoyle second string when finishing less than 3l behind Glasstura and stable companion Bye Bye Birdie on her Curragh debut. That form has been impressively franked and the Galileo filly gets the vote after shaping well when staying on pleasingly in the latter stages. This extra furlong looks sure to suit. Jim Bolger's debutant, Chroussa, a daughter of Holy Roman Emperor, should receive a market check.
