In depth

Verdict

Glen Ginnie had Zelie Martin just under a length back in second when scoring on ground with some give at Naas and there's very little between them at the revised weights though the latter may just have the edge. Conversational is still a maiden but her turn shouldn't be far away as she ran very well in a better class handicap at the Curragh last time. However, she was beaten into second by OUR MANEKINEKO at Dundalk in April and though the winner hasn't produced that kind of form on Turf there have been valid excuses and he's well enough handicapped to take this. Nuestra Alegria showed her liking for fast ground at Limerick but didn't handle Polytrack as well on her only subsequent start.
