Verdict

Aasleagh Fawn was conceding El Tren 2lb when scoring by just over a length over this track and trip, though that was on fast going. There's nothing between the pair though the latter has done better on more testing ground subsequently and can reverse the form. However, she finished behind FULL MOON MAGIC (NAP) when Joseph O'Brien's filly was beaten a neck behind A Few Bob Short over 1m4f at Thurles and, as that was only the selection's sixth race, she can make further progress and gain her first victory. Bajan Excell took advantage of heavy going to lose his maiden tag in a Limerick handicap though he has almost another 3f to travel here while Harvey Specter is another trying the trip for the first time.
