Verdict

AP McCoy takes the ride on COLLEGE BOY and his mount is taken to follow up last month's victory at Fairyhouse where he won much more easily than the official margin suggests. Good As Gold is still a maiden but should be winning soon and this looks her trip as she finished runner-up at Naas last month. Akinspirit has returned after a break to run well but Director's Forum could have done without an 8lb rise for narrowly beating Hop In at Punchestown. Mireya looks the biggest threat as she beat a decent type in a maiden at Listowel and showed herself in very good heart by scoring on the Flat at Galway in October.
