Verdict
A fiendish puzzle for punters to solve last thing on a Sunday evening, plenty of luck in running will be required to get home first. Zeeyalater delivered on recent promise when scoring at Tipperary and should remain competitive off his new mark, though the draw is not ideal. With the Dermot Weld team now flying, A Likely Story is on the shortlist but again, the draw is a negative. Zippy is in good heart if handling this shorter trip while Brave Display is weighted to go well if producing his best stuff. Lake George is primed to run a big race and fairly handicapped if doing so while the luckless Shelbe would be higher on the shortlist but for a poor draw. LITTLE WHITE OWL has had just five runs but David Marnane's filly ran a stormer here recently in a similar contest. She's drawn to be handy again and Killian Leonard's mount could improve enough to land this tough contest.
