Verdict

Smoulder, a close relative of the high-class Legatissimo, cost 725,000gns as a yearling and could do with a victory for the paddocks. She looked the likely winner over this trip at Limerick but couldn't quite keep up the gallop and was beaten in a triple-photo. This doesn't look any easier though Light Laughter, whose close fourth to Hydrangea at the Curragh in August is the best form on view, is likely to better over further in time. FARADAYS LAW (NAP) hails from a yard in top form and ran an excellent race on her reappearance at Navan, only just failing to hold the well supported So You Thought over a mile. Back against fillies here she can go one better though Ger Lyons has three entries and the booking of Kevin Manning for the progressive Kiss The Wind looks interesting.
