Verdict

FRED THE FOOT has a chunky rise to defy for his Down Royal success but he appears to be on the improve with each start. There may well be more to come upped to 3m and it seems unlikely that we've seen his best stuff just yet. Easy Gold, one of a trio for the champion trainer in this, is a distance winner and will surely leave his disappointing handicap bow at Listowel behind. Deor comes here off a career-best win and is another with potentially more to offer while Rightdownthemiddle is on a workable mark back on Irish shores.
