Verdict

UNIVERSAL FOCUS was touched off by a head over this trip at Dundalk last time and, also fully effective on turf, he wouldn't need to find much improvement in order to go one better off this 1lb higher mark. Galtymore had a recent spin over hurdles and makes some appeal on his preceding Killarney third off this mark over 1m3f, while Crafted Jewel is entitled to step up on her Curragh fourth last time now eased in grade.

Verdict

MIRO was a little underwhelming last time but prior to that, he'd shaped as if ready to capitalise on a reduced mark on his reappearance and, with one of the more experienced riders in the plate, he's worth chancing to build on that encouragement at the second attempt. Universal Focus and Galtymore look the principal dangers.
