Verdict

Match My Fire shed the maiden tag at Tramore last week and will have claims if in a similar mood here, but that seems far from a certainty given that win took three years and 17 runs in the crafting. Touch Of Gold is still seeking a first Flat success but efforts this summer have suggested it is looming while Madrid must be respected on seasonal reappearance for Ballydoyle despite an underwhelming juvenile campaign. Sligo winner MARICRUZ backed that up when second at Tramore upped to his distance and, with another pound added, is fancied to go very close once more.
  1. Maricruz
  2. Touch Of Gold
  3. Madrid
