Verdict

Curley Bill goes from strength to strength and comfortably saw off Un Beau Roman at Listowel. He should again have the measure of that rival and also his stablemate Shamar, who will need to find extra on what he's done to date. QUE PASA is improving with every run and though only narrowly in front of Shamar at Galway he progressed again when returning there and beating the well regarded Indevan. He gets 4lb from Curley Bill which may just swing things his way. One Fine Day is a promising youngster though he's another who might find things tough at this stage.
