Verdict

Not much stands out here but Azamesse, a winner on soft ground at Redcar in October, got the hang of jumping late on her debut at Naas and with that under her belt can should get into the mix. Buonarotti Boy and Sarah Joyce were behind that day and the former has since been well beaten at Dundalk but Our Rachael, who showed a bit of potential on the level, will have come on for her run in a much better maiden at Leopardstown. Crafty Power was noted staying on from the rear on that same track last month and should get into the action but GET OUT OF JAIL looks the one to be on as he was in the firing line for a long way before fading at Down Royal in October and his only victory on the level came on heavy ground. Munstead Pride has been beaten a long way on both starts over timber but could still prove best of the remainder.
