Verdict

Dr Zoom couldn't cope with Stack The Deck on his debut in heavy ground at Limerick but it was a promising introduction and there's better to come. ANOTHER RATTLER caught the eye in no uncertain terms at Navan last month when he ran so wide at the bend that he went from first to last before running on strongly at the finish. He can make amends with that experience under his belt. Ballagh made a bright start at Cork but looked in need of a stiffer test when staying on over 2m2f at Limerick. Willie Mullins introduces Measureofmydreams, who changed hands for 65,000 euros after landing a point-to-point at Quakerstown last March and he's an obvious threat while Ballinotty Boy ran well on his debut at Roscommon though that was on fast ground. Dan Bogan is a newcomer to note in the betting from the Noel Meade camp and Peinemma ran easily her best race to date on heavy going here three weeks ago.
