Macquarie has been a disappointment and Donnacha O'Brien, who was on board when he was well beaten at Roscommon, prefers IRRADIATE, who was staying on nicely on just his second start at Galway. He can go one better as he has more scope than Red Gerry, who has been disappointing in handicaps since a very good run at Navan in April. Zarafshan showed potential in the spring and will be better for a recent run at Leopardstown but Rayanpour will need to find a finishing burst from somewhere.
