Verdict

Irish raider CHARLIE'S VIC landed a beginners' race at Naas last month where she jumped particularly well. She was then sent into Grade 2 company at Thurles and though probably fortunate to finish third she ran really well in that exalted company and should have few problems conceding the weight. Micro Mission looks the main threat though she ran moderately at Kelso last time after scoring over hurdles at Wetherby. Bollin Fiona makes her debut over fences but will like the testing ground while Mia Matriarch, who is also having her first run over the bigger obstacles, has only shown flashes of ability over timber.
