In depth

Verdict

Park Row had dropped to a winnable mark when scoring over 1m2f at Fairyhouse and he's only 4lb higher. He led at the 2f mark so today's shorter trip shouldn't be a problem. Fiannaiocht was well supported when runner-up over an extended 7f at Tipperary on Thursday and, with Kevin Manning's stronger handling plus the longer trip in her favour, she'll make a bold bid to recoup losses. Vastonea was having only his third start of the season when beaten a neck at Leopardstown a couple of weeks ago with Castle Guest, who has won from higher marks than this in the past, just behind in third. PERFECT TAPATINO (NAP) looks the one to be on as Joseph O'Brien's charge was making his handicap debut and returning from a long break when heavily supported over a mile at Leopardstown last month. He didn't quite get the run of the race but stayed on strongly and compensation awaits.
