Verdict

Vastitas has flattered to deceive on occasions and, though her overall form is the strongest in this line-up, she looks vulnerable to a more progressive type. David Wachman runs Secret Story and CHAMBEROFCOMMERCE and the latter looks the one to be on after a promising start behind Sing Softly at the Curragh. Music Pearl has run two decent races at Dundalk and can make further progress while newcomers Lord Windark and Ansaab wouldn't need to be world beaters to make a winning start and the latter, in particular, is bred to be useful.
