Verdict

MICKEY THE STEEL produced an encouraging debut effort when third at Fairyhouse last week, forced to switch 1f out before running on late, and should improve over this extra 1f. He shades the vote over Bears Hug, who also made an encouraging start to his career when third over C&D, and Feeling Tip Top, who went close in a similar event at Dundalk 2 weeks ago.

  1. MICKEY THE STEEL
  2. BEARS HUG (IRE)
  3. FEELING TIP TOP (IRE)
