Verdict

A very tight little nursery. Initial ran well over this track and trip before scoring over 6f at Leopardstown but didn't enjoy soft going at Galway and won't want more rain. Joseph O'Brien is on board Toscanelli, who just failed to carry a huge weight to victory at Gowran while Ana O'Brien rides the disappointing Cocoon, who makes her handicap debut. FIT FOR THE JOB showed promise in two starts over 6f before slamming his rivals over this trip at Galway. This is tougher but David Wachman's charge should be up to the task. Fields Of May battled on well to see off Back On Top here three weeks ago though the form of the race has taken a knock while Puck Fair steps up in trip after her narrow victory at Leopardstown though she stayed on strongly and could be suited.
