Forecast

Detailed (5/2), Pearl Of The West (11/4), Magen's Moon (9/2), Bibliotheca (8/1), Mainicin (8/1), Nanabad (10/1), Byron Beauty (11/1), Hamley (12/1), Dew Line (12/1)

Verdict
Mainicin was back in business at Leopardstown on Thursday, making all to score with a bit in hand. She's up 6lb, does stay this far and for all that she's won two from three now, it is routinely all or nothing with her and she hard to fully trust. Detailed ran a fine race at Galway and was only just denied, she should be in the mix but there was plenty to like about the Ballybrit win of PEARL OF THE WEST on her first handicap start. She's been raised 10lb for it but can defy the assessor again.
