In depth

Verdict

Hall Of Mirrors finished half-a-length behind Impound in a Killarney maiden a month ago and the latter was then almost three lengths behind CESTRE NOTRE GRIS at Listowel. A 2lb rise in the ratings shouldn't prevent the excellent claimer Ronan Whelan riding another winner here though Mister Aviation, who was a neck in front of him off level weights at Killarney last time, has to be a threat. Sin Miedo ran poorly on his nursery debut over 7f here but the longer trip will be in his favour.
