Jim Bolger has won three of the last seven though all with three-year-olds and the year older Tobann doesn't look quite good enough despite his victory at Fairyhouse when Wannabe Better was beaten a couple of lengths. The latter had Big Break behind when scoring at Leopardstown in June but it's Tested who looks to be Dermot Weld's main hope despite her defeat in a tactical race at Galway where she found Dalkova too speedy. Witches Brew couldn't get to Brendan Bracken at Cork so it's PURR ALONG who looks the one to be on. Johnny Murtagh's filly beat Fiesolina over a mile at the Curragh in May when Big Break, Tobann and Wannabe Better were all well behind and she's run very well at a higher level in her two subsequent races.
