Verdict

QUIRT EVANS showed improved form making handicap debut when third at Limerick last month and has more potential than most. Arctic Light pulled clear of the rest when a narrow winner at the same track and is another to consider along with the lightly-raced First Touch, who's making his handicap bow.

  1. QUIRT EVANS (IRE)
  2. ARCTIC LIGHT
  3. FIRST TOUCH (IRE)
