Verdict

Pershing hasn't won on the Flat and has looked one-paced in his two starts over timber and may need further. Prussian Eagle is also a maiden on the level but he did much better when runner-up behind Kabjoy at Navan when Lady Clitico was behind. Wrap Star showed potential for John Oxx on the Flat and his new handler got off the mark at Punchestown last weekend. He was behind Gypsy King when the former Aidan O'Brien inmate dead-heated over 1m4f at the Curragh in June but can reverse form with the winner, who has since been well beaten on the Flat. Drop The Subject made a few mistakes at Thurles on his debut but should have learnt from the experience and can get involved. BUISENESS SIVOLA was beaten a long way in very testing conditions on his hurdling debut at Auteuil in March but wouldn't be with Willie Mullins unless thought capable of winning races. He looks to have been found a good opportunity to make a successful start.
