Verdict

The Joseph O'Brien-trained BLACKLOOKS can add to his tally of career victories following a fine win in a Limerick 7f handicap on heavy ground earlier this month off a 4lb lower mark. The Society Rock gelding can continue his improvement here at the expense of a number of improving sorts in the shape of Mother Vincent, recent winner at Naas, the Michael Mulvany-trained, Passing Trade who continues to hit the frame, the hat-trick seeking, We'll Go Again and distance winner, Dare To Flare. No surprise to see Eastern Racer and Fair Game give a good account of themselves in a wide open contest.
  1. Blacklooks
  2. Mother Vincent
  3. Passing Trade
