Verdict

LAREENA could get a nice pull in to the race from De Benno and Ministerforsport to land this 18-runner contest under jockey Brian Cooper. The mare gave Ruby Walsh a comeback win last time out at Thurles winning comfortably by 5L and she looks well treated on handicap debut. Articulum and Spades Are Trumps can hit the frame while High Expectations could out run his odds here.
  1. Lareena
