Verdict

A good-quality middle-distance handicap in which Melburnian and Formula One are closely matched on the form of their Ballinrobe meeting recently. The former is fancied to reverse the form as she is now 2lbs better off with the latter. The Joseph O'Brien-trained Perfect Tapatino bounced back with a fine effort when a narrow second at the Curragh when he was held-up for most of the race, and it is unlikely his progress is going to stop anytime soon. However, he may have to play the bridesmaid once more, this time to TROSSACHS. The selection was bidding for the four-timer prior to being stretched by the trip last time out and can resume his progress returned to 1m4f.
  1. Trossachs
  2. Perfect Tapatino
  3. Melburnian
