In depth

Verdict

Joseph O'Brien has won the last two of these and Snapius has been racing in strong company since landing a Limerick maiden but Tut Tut, a 7f Leopardstown maiden winner, struggled over that trip in a Curragh nursery next time. BUTTERFLY ISLAND couldn't quite get past Capitulation at Bellewstown and is only 1lb better off so there should be little between them again, though the former is just taken to reverse the form and land this. Cyclamen disappointed on ground with plenty of give at Naas so wouldn't want more rain while the remaining pair have plenty to find.
