Verdict
The Jessica Harrington-trained NJORD looked all over the winner here on Tuesday before nailed on the line by the fast finishing Saltonstall, losing by a nose. The four-year-old can get back to winning ways here under Shane Foley, with Mr Wendell, off the mark at the third attempt in a Gowran Park maiden over a similar trip last month, looks a handy mark for handicap debut. The Dermot Weld-trained Jassaar, Laugh A Minute and Big Baby Bull can compete for remaining prize money, while Current Option is worth a check in the market.
  1. Njord
  2. Mr Wendell
  3. Big Baby Bull
