Verdict

Empresario should win races this season but looks too high in the weights at present and the stable have a better chance with Amazing Star, who is nicely handicapped at his best. The Fox Tully ran really well behind Valbucca at the Curragh on Monday while Brown Butterfly caught the eye on her reappearance at the same fixture and is well handicapped. STRONGER THAN ME made a winning return to action here last month where he came with a strong burst to win going away. He's up 7lb for that but is lighly raced and is taken to complete the hat-trick. Troon hails from a yard in top form so the lack of a run since he landed a Listowel maiden in September isn't a concern, while Danzerini has only had four starts in his life and looked sure to win again soon after a fair comeback at Dundalk.
