In depth

Verdict

The front-running Baily Dusk was fortunate to be left clear at Thurles in November and was soon done with when stepping up a grade at Leopardstown the following month. CARRY EACH OTHER hasn't quite has his jumping problems eradicated but has done better on his last couple of starts and a clear round can see him home. Witness Of Fashion ran two fine races early in February and could have been feeling the effects when beaten a long way at Naas. Milan Breeze made his handicap debut at Navan on Sunday but was well beaten after attempting to make all.
