In depth

Verdict

SARAFIYLA looked very much in need of the experience on her belated debut at Naas last month and will have come on a bundle for the run. She did well to finish reasonably close to a couple of decent rivals and should take this. Craic Agus Spraoi showed promise in her first campaign but an absence since September is a concern and she may do better in handicaps later. Henson has been a beaten favourite three times in his five starts but has mainly looked one paced and will need to find a finishing burst from somewhere.
