Vocalised’s TDN Rising Star Verbal Dexterity Powers To National Glory

By Tom Frary

VERBAL DEXTERITY (IRE), c, 2, Vocalised–Lonrach (Ire), by Holy Roman Emperor (Ire).

O-Mrs J S Bolger; B-Jim Bolger John Corcoran (IRE); T-Jim Bolger; J-Kevin Manning. €199,500. Lifetime Record: 3-2-1-0, €233,280.

   With Gustav Klimt (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) withdrawn as connections were not happy with the likely favourite, it was left to Beckford (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}) to carry the mantle of favouritism here but he was unable to match TDN Rising Star Verbal Dexterity who readily reversed the form of the July 1 G2 Railway S. in which he had been second to him last time. Always close to the pace under Kevin Manning, the 5-2 second favourite drew away from the rest along with the 6-4 market-leader but stayed on much stronger from the furlong pole to win by 3 1/2 lengths, with 2 3/4 lengths back to Rostropovich (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) in third.
