In depth

Verdict

Patrick Sarsfield was returning from a year off when starting odds-on at Cork three weeks ago where he just failed to hold the late thrust of Dance Jupiter. He will have come on for the run but ALEZIA made a very promising debut at Cork back in April so the lack of a recent outing shouldn't be a problem and she can make her allowance count. Simply A Breeze also made an encouraging start over this track and trip last month and normal progress should see her in contention while Storm Elza ran quite well on soft going in the spring. Rosy Life showed up well for a long way on her debut in France and looks a nice addition to Ado McGuiness' team.
