Verdict

MYSTERY GAL and Nulife were not far away last month at Limerick and should be able to challenge here over this shorter trip. The former was in the firing line a good way from home and stuck to her task impressively, while never able to get in front. That was her second promising effort on the bounce and she has a good opportunity to grab her breakthrough success in this. Nulife stayed on from what wasn't a great position and clearly has claims on the same terms here. Easy Boy is a quirky sort but has been showing up well at Dundalk and might throw down a bid here with Smullen to aid him again (partnership is 0/3). Dual performer Belclare Boy is appealingly weighed if able to reproduce his previous Flat effort now switched back from the jumps.
  1. Mystery Gal
  2. Nulife
  3. Belclare Boy
