Verdict

Dark Voyager for trainer Willie Mulllins can follow up his bold bid at this meeting on Monday in the closing race of the day. The Ravens Pass gelding ran the in form Flying Scotsman to 3L over 1m4½f but may be surprised by the Noel Meade-trained NATAHOOLABABY. The three-year-old can improve on his return to action at Killarney last month, in first-time blinkers and under top apprentice Gavin Ryan who claims 5lb. The Gavin Cromwell-trained, Call Me Dolly ran well in defeat on seasonal debut at Limerick in June and can give another bold account, while Day Dreamin' and Allora Yeats look capable of hitting the frame.
