In depth

Verdict

Tinkerbells Effect showed very good speed to lead over a furlong out at Navan only to be swamped soon after. She'll have come on plenty for that and her stable also run Erlking, though he's more likely to need further. Fool Proof is a half-brother to a couple of winners but was cheaply bought unlike SOUTH SAQQARA, who cost $300,000 and is a son of the great American Pharoah. He's likely to start at very short odds here and the half-brother to Group 2-winning sprinter Acapulco and other winners will be expected to make a successful start.
