Verdict

Thomasgainsborough is already looking as though he needs much further and this stoutly-bred colt might find this on the short side unless the ground becomes very testing. Johnny Murtagh attempted to make all on Handazan at the Curragh but his mount could only stay on at one pace when headed. Fatcatinthehat didn't enjoy the Polytrack surface at Dundalk and can do much better while Daliyan made a very encouraging start behind Tibet at Gowran and will have come on nicely for the run. GOLDEN HILL was just a length behind Tibet that day and showed the benefit with a very good effort at the Curragh where he found Call To Battle just too strong. He looks ready to get on the scoresheet and this should be his day.
