Verdict

It was hardly surprising that Champagne Agent was sent off a long odds-on favourite at Leopardstown after a very promising debut behind Star Neuville there earlier. However, he disappointed after attempting to make all and less forcing tactics are likely to be employed here. SALUTING, who finished just in front of Willie Mullins charge in that second Leopardstown race, is entitled to have gained the most benefit and can land this for Jessica Harrington. Andunowhat was well beaten when runner-up to Whatwillwecallher at Limerick and Ample Appeal was a disappointment when strongly fancied at Thurles in January.
