Verdict

MUSIC TO MY EARS did well to get as close as she did when runner-up at the Curragh in July, having been bumped at the start, so she remains of firm interest moving forward. Breaking Story and Agitare are a coupe of others to take seriously in an interesting handicap.

  1. MUSIC TO MY EARS (IRE)
  2. BREAKING STORY (IRE)
  3. AGITARE (IRE)
