Posted a career best on first start since leaving Sarah Lynam when winning 25-runner maiden at the Curragh (6f) in April. Has switched yards again and it remains to be seen if she can back that up.

Forecasts

Sister Lola (3/1), Meishar (4/1), El Padre (8/1), Dream Today (9/1), Arcanears (9/1), Sendmylovetoyou (9/1), Inflection Point (11/1), Dilawara (12/1), Aikido (14/1), Independent Missy (16/1), Abeona (25/1), Pinball Wizard (28/1), Sister Rosetta (33/1), Avagardner (50/1), Cityman (50/1)

Verdict

MEISHAR had a bit in hand when regaining the winning thread over C&D a fortnight ago, and given he remains completely unexposed as a sprinter, a 6 lb rise may not be enough to prevent the follow up. Sister Lola and Cityman are a couple of others to consider in an open race.

  1. MEISHAR (ARG)
  2. SISTER LOLA (IRE)
  3. CITYMAN
