Verdict

This is quite a difficult puzzle to solve. Talented dual-purpose performer Hannon made an encouraging start to life on the level when finishing a close third at Bellewstown. There should be more to come from him as he drops back in trip to 1m4f.Quote is greatly respected after she found a good chunk of improvement when stepped up to 1m4f to go agonisingly close at the Curragh last month. However, we'll stick with ZARAFSHAN who took a sizeable step forward on what he had shown in previous outings when a three-length second to Sir Dragonet when last seen in April. Provided he is ready to roll on return from an absence he could take some stopping.
