In depth

Verdict

COMPLICIT, who is on a long losing run, keeps attracting support and was staying on over 7f at the Curragh so tonight's extra could finally see him back in the winner's enclosure. Mystery Gal has been racing over further but likes quick ground as she showed when scoring at Clonmel in May. Nivvo made a fair handicap debut here last month and Pat Smullen is a positive booking while Punches Pious was a very easy winner over the course and distance last month, though that was on very heavy going. The selection's new stable companion Hasselnott is still a maiden after 15 starts but it shouldn't be long before he loses his maiden tag from this sort of mark.
