Verdict

Gra Geal Mo Chroi proved herself to be better than claiming class when finishing third in a handicap at Limerick and her apprentice's 7lb claim could prove vital in forcing her head in front where it matters. NIGHT INVADER is less experienced than most of her rivals but she made a real fist of it at Leopardstown on her first experience of a faster surface, and there was no disgrace in splitting a pair of runners rated 77 and 85 on that occasion. Table Forty Six shaped well at Tipperary in June and needs to bounce back from a modest run at Killarney. Gun Shoot was well held on the Polytrack at Dundalk, and while that has to be factored into any betting plans, her pedigree suggests that the trip probably wasn't the reason for defeat. Despite appearing to be exposed, Bobskier was hit by a 9lb rise for a convincing win at Tramore and that won't make life any easier for Gerard O'Leary's mare.
