Verdict

Sparanai started off over 1m5f at Navan but quickly dropped to 7f at Naas on Monday, now he's back up in trip again. Got To Dream's pedigree suggests she should be suited by stepping up to the trip, a remark that undoubtedly applies to Benny Blanco, who would have passed Gentry in a few more strides over 1m2f at Roscommon. Fog Of War came in for strong support at Naas after an encouraging debut but couldn't quite cope with a couple of promising types. He looks certain to get competitive though he, and the remainder, may find KAREZAK too strong. John Oxx' charge showed nothing in his first season but it was a different matter on his reappearance over 1m5f at Navan where he made the short-priced favourite John Constable pull out all the stops.
