Verdict

Teocht makes her debut for Jim Bolger and the half-sister to a 7f winner is one to keep an eye on as she's entered in a Listed contest next month. Bint Nayef has been narrowly beaten in two Polytrack events and there's no reason why she shouldn't handle this going while Plinth looked as though he needed further when staying on over 1m4f at Leopardstown though he was behind MOURANI and the latter should take this. He's a half-brother to the classy Mourilyan amongst others and will have improved enough for his comeback to gain his first success.
