In depth

Verdict

Isle Of Innisfree hasn't shown nearly enough to be considered but stable companion Fantasy has been coming up against smart performers and was by no means disgraced in Listed company at Tipperary last time. Golden Eye Diamond was a 66/1 chance at the Curragh but belied his odds with a cracking effort and might have finished even closer but for his saddle slipping. RITA LEVI finished in front of Fantasy when runner-up to Gossamer Wings at Navan then just couldn't get past Secret Thoughts at Naas. She should go one better unless one of the newcomers is something special.
