Verdict

VOLKIS O'BLUE was a surprise winner of this a year ago and though he was on a 13lb lower mark he's still capable of winning at this level and can come out on top against Rating Queen, who has been handed a 9lb rise following her victory at Thurles last month. Pink Goddess has won just once in 20 starts over timber and is still a few pounds high and though Ballyquin Queen had some reasonable form for Philip Hobbs she may just need this first start for new connections. The remainder enter the fray out of form though the market is best watched for signs of a possible revival.
