Verdict

A big field where very few make a lot of appeal. Alabama Rose is likely to prove better than her final start of last year and is representing a yard in full flow currently, while Arbor Des Champs has shown enough in bumpers to merit a second glance. Nicaragua's effort at Tramore last month sets the standard on form and she ought to give this a fair push with a noted jockey booking suggesting confidence in her. Khalessi is also respected and has done well over these obstacles but it might prove wise to side with DAWN IN THE PARK on her jumping bow. She's bred for the job and showed some promise over a longer trip in a Fairyhouse bumper last month.
  1. Dawn In The Park
  2. Nicaragua
  3. Alabama Rose
