Verdict

Heirloom will be popular having got back to winning ways at Gowran but the Dansili colt will have to improve again to defy a 6lb higher mark and we're keen to stick with VASANTA NAVARATRI. Despite finding the 1m trip too short again, he buckled down well to get on top at Dundalk and we should see more of what he is capable of over the extra half-mile. Safe Home was a little disappointing on his second start and appears to have enough weight but Placere, Convocate and Tri Na Ceile all arrive off the back of recent wins. The latter is definitely the most interesting as she had plenty in hand at Killarney. It's also too soon to give up on Galway fourth Abu Nayef and he makes more appeal than Time For Action and Positive Vibes.
