Verdict

A difficult betting heat to sort out, Dakota Moirette ran well in the Fred Winter and will be popular here off a significantly lower Irish rating while Artful Artist has been knocking loudly on the door and now has Ruby Walsh booked for the steer. Slicker City ran a solid race over a longer trip at this course a fortnight ago and is considered, though he was granted a lead that day. Magna Cartor is back in realistic territory after a run in the Supreme at Cheltenham and should be competitive while Fridaynightlights has joined the Elliott team and is respected on his efforts at Clonmel last time out. Holly Flight could have plenty more to offer going handicapping after a successful debut in this country at Downpatrick while Roi De Dubai at a much bigger price isn't out of things on his run behind her that day. BEECHMOUNT WHISPER is given the vote to continue his winning record over timber. He scored nicely at Kilbeggan last summer and returned with a 7f win on the Flat recently so he should be spot on for this.
