Verdict

Not a particularly deep race and even those with what passes for reasonable form have to overcome some obstacles with two of the main players in MULLAGHMURPHY BLUE and Final Fling having to show that they can cope with this shorter trip. The former did travel well last time and should just have the experience to cope with the latter. Running In Heels should be able to play a part off an increased mark without making much appeal while Devito’sgoldengirl may well prove better in this sphere but does have to bounce back from a poor run with it being hard to construct a case for the remaining four.
  1. Mullaghmurphy Blue
  2. Final Fling
  3. Devito'sgoldengirl
