Verdict

The Willie Mullins-trained LAREENA should herald the return of jockey-Ruby Walsh just in time for next weeks exploits. The five-year-old has put in two solid and consistent displays on her last starts and should prove good enough here. Awayinthewest and Gordon Elliott debutante Savannah Storm can hit the frame.
  1. Lareena
