In depth

Verdict

It's rare to find one of Aidan O'Brien's at the foot of a handicap but Fairylike, after a promising run over 1m2f here in May, was never in contention behind today's rival KILDARE KITTEN over 1m4f at Tramore subsequently and the winner looks set to go in again from just 6lb higher. Dermot Weld's filly was having just her fifth start that day and there looks to be plenty more to come. Bat Masterson scored on ground with some give at Roscommon last month and ran well enough on much quicker going at the Curragh subsequently to suggest he's progressing enough to get involved. Do The Bosanova makes his handicap debut and showed enough ability at Tipperary last time to get him noticed while Brecan Boy battled on into a minor place over 1m2f here last time and the longer trip looks just what he requires.
