THEODORICO (NAP) has been beaten by four Ballydoyle inmates in strong maidens here and at the Curragh. The assessor appears to have his rating about right but hopefully there's still some improvement in Jim Bolger's colt and he can finally get off the mark. Ms Brinkleys landed a Down Royal maiden, with Gossip Central a long way behind, before a very good second in a lucrative auction event at Naas so she has to be respected. Orangey Red had looked a certain future winner with unlucky runs here and at Limerick but failed to build on those efforts in a Roscommon maiden, though that didn't look her true form. Athas An Bhean failed to handle Group 3 company at Ayr and steps up to this trip for the first time.
