Verdict

Rock On Barney is banging on the door now and could soon make his way in, he's been strong in two Clonmel outings this month and has obvious claims once more. SHE'LLBEALLRIGHT backed up her Punchestown run with a good breakthrough win at Fairyhouse last month. She had the race in safe keeping from the back of the last with a good turn of foot and a 6lb rise won't hinder her if in the same mood. Runner-up Think Of Me is also entitled to go well again having come clear of the remainder while top weight Milan Dancer isn't out of it in this class having run well for a long way at Ayr last time. Handicap debutant Sister Saragh is worth a precursory glance in the market while Kilkeaskins First, a faller last time when still going well at Fairyhouse, is much improved this season and should make a bid for a share of the prizemoney. 1. She'llbeallright 2. Rock On Barney 3. Kilkeaskins First
