In depth

Verdict

Blissful Moment has More Madness close up in third when scoring in very heavy ground at Down Royal though slightly better going may suit the latter. It's a surprise to see Wrong Turn entered here after pulling up at Cheltenham on Tuesday but he'd have a chance on his earlier form. A change of tactics to front-running paid dividends for GRAND JESTURE at Fairyhouse and though he's making his handicap debut in this much tougher contest he looks a progressive type and is given the nod. My Murphy has to be a major threat after his close second to Foxrock in a Grade 2 here and amongst numerous others with chances the easy Punchestown winner Too Late To Sell is respected.
