Verdict
A fairly motley crew assembled here on form and it might be worth chancing RUNNING IN HEELS to follow up her recent Kilbeggan success on debut for Gavin Cromwell. She's lightly-raced and did that well enough to suggest a 9lb hike may not prove beyond her. Milestone Prince was quite consistent at this sort of level last summer and should have a chance if ready to roll while Misdflight shaped nicely on first start for connections at Cork and could go well if building on that. Crown Of Thorns upped his game on handicap debut and represents a trainer in form while Cher Why Not is on a workable mark based on his best efforts.
