Verdict

Probably not the strongest of mares bumpers to conclude the opening day of the season at Punchestown, but a race where it should pay too focus upon those horses with experience. The likeliest winner is the Noel Meade trained once raced four-year-old filly IAMASTARTOO. This well named filly is a full sister to the useful all rounder She's A Star, and she was probably a shade unfortunate to be nabbed close home on debut at Wexford in May. Nina Carberry has been booting home a regular supply of winners in these races since her return to the saddle, and with the go-to rider booked for the mount, this first time tongue tied filly should get off the mark at the second attempt.
  1. Iamastartoo
