Verdict

A first-time tongue-tie appeared to be the reason for the marked improvement in performance of the Gordon Elliott-trained FIGHT FOR LOVE on his most recent start at Fairyhouse earlier this month. The gelding can get off the mark here under jockey Davy Russell with the potentially improving Alice Johnston possibly emerging as the biggest danger. C&D winner Still Alive, Musical Ava, who drops in trip here and Shedding should not be taken lightly.
