Verdict

LIBRAS POWER was always in the front rank over this trip at Leopardstown and battled on really well so a 4lb rise could prove lenient. Fugacious couldn't quite get into contention over an extended 6f at the Curragh but stayed on powerfully and was only beaten just over a length. Pursuit Of Magic has only had three runs and faces a tough task on her handicap debut as does Severus Alexander, who looks high enough on what he's shown to date. Summerset showed promise in her opening campaign and an opening mark of 67 could be worth exploiting.
