Verdict

MOYHENNA has a solid body of form to her name and deserves to pick up another good prize. This drop back to the minimum trip may not be ideal, but it should be run at a decent pace and that will suit her. She can come out on top. Shimmer's Rock has a bit to find on form but was quietly impressive at Clonmel and with no worries over the trip or ground, could take a prize home. Willie Mullins has a strong hand, as ever in these events, with Redhotfillypeppers and Cut The Mustard looking like his best chances.
  1. Moyhenna
