    Verdict

    SAYESSE (NAP) has never run here but scored twice on the surface in the UK. He arrives with a penalty for a comfortable victory on heavy ground at Gowran on Monday but that doesn't look enough to prevent a quick follow-up. Dubai Rainbow has run three times here and won twice including a month ago when making all over a mile. He was well clear at this trip and, though 6lb higher, looks certain to give a good account. Midnitemudcrabs is on a long losing run but has been going very well on Turf and should make a bold bid to add to his two victories on the track. Magic Fountain has only run four times and showed much more dash at Thurles so it's possible she could be much better than a 69-rated handicapper while Fascinating Spirit is improving gradually and will be winning soon from this sort of mark.
