Verdict

Leafy Suburb stepped up on her Curragh debut when third at Navan and should have more to offer. Bogardus was second on his reappearance at Dundalk but Magic Magnolia was beaten 25 lengths when third at Cork. Ode To Psyche's latest run came in Listed company and she should find this easier but she lacks the scope of the beautifully-bred SHERAMA, who should come into her own now tackling middle-distances and can land this finale.
