In depth

Verdict

Call Of The Jungle produced two good runs on ground with plenty of give last autumn and probably found the going too quick on her reappearance at Leopardstown. Gulf Of Aiden only showed moderate form over 7f last summer but ran very well in a Naas maiden over 6f last month and is certain to go well on that form but it's LOUGH SWILLY PEARL who looks the one to beat. She was a 200/1 chance for what looked a decent 7f Tipperary maiden last month but led for most of the way until collared inside the final furlong. The remainder make little appeal.
