Verdict

Dressedtothenines was placed in two Grade 2s in the spring and looks certain to do well this season, though her long absence may count against her here. Burn And Turn had been going well before finding Grade 3 company too much at Punchestown and this looks just as tough. Dream Function did well for Philip Hobbs but was fortunate to make a winning debut over fences at Clonmel and quickly reverts to hurdling. Willie Mullins complicates matters by saddling both ZUZKA and Glens Melody and though preference is just for the former it would be no shock to see the four-year-old gain the fifth win of her career from just six starts. However, the selection's close third to Jezki in the Grade 1 Royal Bond at Fairyhouse was given a massive boost by the winner here on Thursday and she has to be the one to beat.
