Verdict

Tony Martin finally got a race out of EASY VIC at Leopardstown and shouldn't be too unhappy with a 6lb rise despite the fact he only scrambled home. Now he's got his head in front he's taken to follow-up though Refused A Name and Popaflora, 1-2 over a shorter trip here a couple of weeks ago, are greatly respected as is the close fourth Crowded Room. Take A Shot isn't without a chance as he beat Popaflora in December while Robert Tyner's horses have been going so well that recent Thurles winner Knock Beauty can get involved.
