Verdict

Que Pasa is comfortably the pick of those with an official rating as she was narrowly beaten in a similar race to this at Tipperary in October. However, her three victories have come on very much faster ground and today's conditions are likely to be against her. Katie T landed a strong maiden at Naas last month but was earlier put in her place by URTICAIRE at Navan. Willie Mullins' mare has twice been beaten subsequently, though over longer trips, and a return to the minimum can see her back on track. Dual bumper winner Railway Zira looked a nice hurdling recruit when landing a Punchestown maiden in January then found 3m much too far in a Grade 3 at Clonmel the following month.
