In depth

Verdict

GREYSCAPE finished ahead of An Duine Uasal when sixth on his racecourse debut and showed improved form to take second at Tipperary last time. Any further progress can see him off the mark. Mint Chai's half-brother won over 7f as a two-year-old but Love Is All Around is related to a couple of winning sprinters abroad and may prove best of the newcomers for Jessica Harrington.
