Verdict
Golden Jewel is of obvious interest after making a winning handicap debut at Fairyhouse last time out but a 9lb rise in the weights won't make things interesting, while Russian Roulette needs considering after experiencing some bad luck in-running last time. Preference, though is for GETAWAY ROSE. This four-year-old has been improving in maiden hurdles before being in the process of running a big race at Fairyhouse last time when parting company with her rider two out. Off this weight and in first-time blinkers, she looks to have a live chance in a competitive race where Champagne Pat and Sir Carno are others with claims.
  1. Getaway Rose
  2. Russian Roulette
  3. Golden Jewel
