Best effort when just denied in a Curragh maiden in September over this trip and a solid handicap run at the same track on final 2yo start; the cheekpieces worn then are left off; capable of running well.

Verdict

Despite hanging to the left TISCOMMONKNOWLEDGE showed notable improvement at Naas when tackling this trip for the first time. With Wayne Hassett taking off a very useful 7lb she may account for last week’s Gowran winner Expecto and top weight Rapid Mission who looks reasonably treated for his handicap debut. [Alan Sweetman]
