In depth

Verdict

Tapestry won this for Ballydoyle a year ago and TOOGOODTOBETRUE should follow suit. She made her debut in what looked a strong Naas maiden earlier this month and though in need of the experience did very well to finish runner-up and should go one better. Gussy Goose started favourite at Fairyhouse but couldn't handle Marsali though she holds Perfect Fit on a line through the winner. Queen Anne has had enough chances and may have to wait for a nursery to get off the mark. There are some very well-connected newcomers entered though it's a tough start for all.
