In depth


This normally goes to an unexposed type so the fact that last week's Navan winner Dick Whittington has already had three runs is a bit of a concern. Fellow Irish raider TOSCANINI makes more appeal as his form stands up to scrutiny. He just failed to overhaul Kool Company in a Listed race over 6f at Naas earlier this month and is certain to be suited by the extra furlong. Wesley Ward's juveniles are always worth a mention at this meeting and he runs two in this. Crown The Kitten only found one too good on his debut while the well-bred Cordero was an expensive purchase. Newmarket winner Justice Well should have no trouble staying and Nafaqa should win races, though might lack the experience today.
