Verdict

After a promising run at Navan, Brazil flopped when odds-on at Tipperary and will need to do better here. Flying Visit was a real eye-catcher here last week, missing the break before staying on strongly to finish just a length behind the winner. COLOUR SERGEANT was beaten 2 lengths by subsequent Group 2 winner Mac Swiney then was well beaten by Thunder Moon over 7f here. The winner looked very smart that day so Ger Lyons' charge can finally get off the mark.
