Verdict

Spirited missed the break on her reappearance at the Curragh but got into contention before fading. She'll be better for the run as will Toe The Line, who did very well to run Cosmic Cannonball close at Gowran though that was over 1m4f. The superbly-bred Edelmira looks as though she'll be suited by further though Pat Smullen chooses her over fellow newcomer Sereza, who is bred for this trip. TIRGHRA hasn't done as well as expected and could only finish runner-up in a three-horse race at Cork but this is a good opportunity for her and Kevin Manning replaces the apprentice who was on board so she gets the vote.
