Verdict

SKY SEVEN was a 25/1 chance when beaten a head over the course and distance three weeks ago where he stayed on late and only just failed. That's the best form on view and he can go one better. Crockford made a promising start over this trip at Gowran in June but failed to stay an extra furlong at Leopardstown the following month. He looks a threat and his stable also run Holy Hymn, a half-brother to two winners. Dare To Flare ran a bit better in a nursery last week but will need to improve again as will Lyrical Attraction, who couldn't find the pace over the track and trip last month though wasn't beaten far at the finish. Sea Sister ran well for a long way here a fortnight ago and will have come on for the experience.
