Verdict

Frosty Beach looks to have been saved for this having gradually improved before landing a Naas handicap. She's only up 3lb and will take some beating but LEAGAN GAEILGE is another on the upgrade and also won nicely on the latter track last time. A 2lb rise looks insignificant and she can complete a quick double. Tauran Shaman has been handed a mark of 90 after a narrow victory in a Killarney maiden and this is much tougher but Balefire and Cosmic Horizon fought out a finish at Leopardstown with the former winning narrowly though with something in hand. Zander couldn't quite get close enough to Turnberry Isle at Ballinrobe but that was no disgrace and a big run is expected.
