MASUCCI attracted good support on his debut over this trip at Limerick and stayed on strongly in the closing stages after being outpaced early. That will have brought him on and he can get off the mark. Isaac Wonder wasn't too far behind though had every chance and looks held and Spirit Power hasn't progressed from his opening runs at Dundalk. Bye Bye Brussels made her debut in a very strong maiden at the Curragh and ran well enough to be given a chance here while Stellar Eclipse and Fiannaiocht are newcomers to note.
