Divine Rhapsody won a novices' handicap at Down Royal over the minimum trip and didn't appear to last home over an extra half-mile at Fairyhouse. Pairofbrowneyes scrambled home in a moderate maiden and meets much stiffer opposition but Asitsohappens had been going well in maiden company before finally getting off the mark at Thurles. Hazariban battled on gamely to score on heavy ground at Gowran but a 7lb rise looks harsh so the vote goes to RORY O'MOORE, who has been staying on under pressure over the minimum trip and is expected to be suited by the extra.
