Verdict

Dayrina is still a maiden but ran very well behind Brother Rabbit at Gowran last week when Jkt Prince was just behind and both Beloved Leader and Mr Lando further in arrears. However, that was over 1m1f and this is a big step up in distance for all of them. BEACH OF FALESA makes her handicap debut but has shown promise and wasn't hindered by the heavy ground at Navan last month. She's bred for middle-distances and this looks her trip so she's handed the vote. Positive Vibes ran well enough behind Placere at Limerick to be considered and Top Man Michael ploughed through the mud to land a Navan claimer so the conditions are in his favour.
