Verdict

DUNKIRK HARBOUR, a winner at Dundalk in April, ran very well in a Leopardstown Group 3 before well beaten in the Britannia Handicap at Ascot. Hillwalker landed a Gowran maiden last June but didn't return until the Irish 2000 Guineas in May where he finished last. Manjeer, a Leopardstown winner last October, wasn't up to Listed class on his reappearance then couldn't get to Decrypt at Cork though the winner then ran a superb race when third in the Irish 2000 Guineas. Manqoosh comfortably landed a Gowran maiden in May and though the form hasn't worked out there should be more to come from Dermot Weld's charge. Rhydwyn followed a narrow defeat at Listowel by making all for an impressive victory at Limerick and is another likely to find more but the newcomer Teodora De Urbina faces a tough task.
