Verdict

Jonny Levins found the key to Burn The Boats, who won two claimers here, but the eight-year-old has changed stables and has shot up the weights. Levins also trains Complicit, who hasn't won for a very long time but has dropped in the ratings accordingly and now looks on a very fair mark. ELUSIVE APPROACH completed a double in minor handicaps here before taking on better company on Turf. Back on her favourite surface she can take this for Jim Bolger. Rosenborg Rider won on Polytrack for Ralph Beckett and should soon be scoring again for Ado McGuiness after a very good run behind Arbourfield here last month. Carrigeen Prince gained his two career victories on this track at the backend of last year and will have come on markedly for his run at Leopardstown where he only faded in the closing stages.
