In depth

Verdict

After a promising run behind stable companion Courage Under Fire at Naas, Circus Ring couldn't get to Miss Qatar on testing ground at Fairyhouse and should be better suited by today's going. Idyllic Acrylic caught the eye in that latter event and, as that was her opening run, she should make good progress and get into the action. ICE CANYON was only just held when tackling this track and trip then failed to stay 7f on softer going at Roscommon so this looks exactly to his taste and James Doyle can steer him home. Holistic Approach is one to keep an eye on in the betting as he makes his debut.
