Verdict

Intense Light showed some promise in her first campaign but the fact that she hasn't run since October and Jim Bolger puts an inexperienced apprentice on board doesn't send out the right signals. The trainer also runs County Wexford, who is dropping massively from a mile last time. FOREBEAR is no star but at least has plenty of pace as he showed when a close second to Johnny Lawman over the course and distance last month. He couldn't cope with Full Steam Ahead at Cork later though that was over 6f and today's trip can enable him to get off the mark. Acting Talent wasn't far behind in that event on this track and could prove a threat but St James Gate was beaten a long way in the latter race.
