Verdict

Statistical started a short-priced favourite on his debut between the flags last April but was totally outpaced. He should do better when getting a test of stamina and his stable has a much better chance with THEATRE DREAMS. She was only narrowly beaten in her last two starts in the autumn and probably needed her comeback despite attracting good support. Carrigready showed promise in bumpers but didn't impress on his hurdling bow at Limerick so Chapelier can provide more of a threat after staying on strongly at Tramore last week. Dawn In The Park has shown enough to suggest she should be winning soon though probably over further and Bryan Cooper has chosen the owner's Statistical. Joseph O'Brien also runs Oath Breaker, who was just in front of Chapelier at Tramore so has to be respected.
