Verdict

Intyre Trail completed a double in June but the handicapper appeared to have got to him at Galway last week. Celestial Prospect had looked a promising type when a close third over 1m2f at Clonmel before finding 1m6f much too far at Ballinrobe. WORDS OF WISDOM travelled well for much of the way before finding little when third to Beauty Express at Wexford. Johnny Murtagh takes over the reigns and there is still enough improvement in his mount to take this from a fair mark. Neighbourly will be winning soon judging on her recent efforts and another maiden, Alpha And Omega, is another to consider after staying on over 7f at Galway last week.
