Verdict

Leigh Roche has more experience than most of these riders and is the regular pilot of LA BELLE MAISON, who looks to have her simplest task to date. Willie McCreery's filly has been narrowly beaten in both attempts over tonight's track and trip and need only produce the form of her run behind Lily Of Kenmare in December to get off the mark. Jessica Harrington tries Lady Temptress in a visor but she hasn't run well enough to test the selection nor has Miss Hansome, who has been running over much further including hurdles. To Choose wasn't too far behind the selection last time and, as that was her first start for three months, she looks the logical threat with her young rider able to claim his allowance.
