Verdict

OZONE turned in an improved performance on his handicap debut at Navan last time, keeping on well to pick up third behind Ideal Pal (second), who helped set the tempo that day and reopposes here. The selection returns on the same mark and could be finishing strongly again now dropping back slightly in trip. Muntahez turned in his best effort yet when fourth in a Roscommon maiden over the extended 7f last time and is also interesting off an opening mark of 70.

Verdict

OZONE took a significant step forward when third on nursery debut at Navan and, providing he copes with the slower gound here, Joseph O'Brien's charge could be the answer off the same mark. Harvest Bow showed enough in maidens to suggest she should be competitive off this sort of mark, for all that she failed to prove as much at Naas last time. Muntahez and Chagall are others to consider.
