Verdict

The performance of MIRACLES IN MAY showed plenty of improvement over the winter for the Approve gelding. The four-year-old finished second of 16 over 1m1f and can continue his progression here turned out quickly. C&D winner Cracking Name may find life difficult of top weight but can still have a say in the finish along with the solid and consistent Dance Alone. Doogan's Warren and Quare Lucky were shaping well on the AW at Dundalk towards the end of the year and deserve consideration here.
