Most of these have had enough chances. Gambling Girl and Wandering Star are winning bumpers and have to concede plenty of weight to the three-year-olds. A Star Is Born represents Ballydoyle and, though she's not well named, did a bit better at Wexford last time. More Of The Same was beaten a long way in a four-runner affair at Leopardstown while Teocht has been looking very one-paced. EBANIYA made a promising start at Ballinrobe last month then showed some improvement a week later when runner-up to Murphy's Delight at Roscommon. She wouldn't need much more to take this and is handed the verdict.
