Verdict
LITTLE MISS WILLOW produced her best effort on turf last time out over this trip at Fairyhouse, attempting to collect the prize with a gutsy effort from the front only to be run down in the dying strides. She is perhaps unfortunate to have gone up 2lb for that run but remains below the mark she won on AW handicap off in December. She's been steadily improving this season on turf and might be up to winning this. Bien Chase is much respected back up in trip having failed to sparkle over 5f last time out while I Will Excel has been knocking on the door lately and will surely have his turn soon. Aspen Belle has more to do off this increased rating while Buttermere is another to go on the shortlist.
  1. Little Miss Willow
  2. Bien Chase
  3. Buttermere
