Verdict

BABA BOOM made a highly encouraging reappearance when second at Navan earlier this month and the lightly-raced three-year-old may have plenty more to offer for trainer Johnny Murtagh. The step up in trip was clearly a benefit to him and Ross Coakley should enjoy a nice spin around here. An array of new aids saw Match My Fire improving his lot at Fairyhouse last time and he's rated a big danger to the selection ahead of recent Roscommon runner-up Mademoiselle Penny, who knows where the winning post is.
  1. Baba Boom
  2. Match My Fire
  3. Mademoiselle Penny
