Verdict

This is a big step-up in trip for Lethal Steps though he stayed on strongly to catch Dawn Delivers over 6f at Leopardstown. Amenette didn't show much in sprints but improved to score over 7f at Limerick and should have no problems with the extra. PAINTING PICTURES was always in the front-rank on her debut over 7f at Roscommon and stormed right away from her rivals at the finish. That was on soft ground so some rain wouldn't go amiss but she can remain unbeaten. Shifted Strategy hasn't shown much but Pat Smullen's presence on board the newcomer Freescape catches the eye.
