Verdict

TECH TALK stands out here, having left his previous efforts a long way behind when second in a Fairyhouse maiden. Admittedly, that wasn't much of a race, but it's perfectly possible that this 6-y-o will take another significant step forward now sent down the handicap route. Boghlone Honey is clear second choice on the back of a solid effort at Gowran, while Rich Belief is open to improvement.
