Verdict

Not beaten far at the festival here over 1m½f before winning a Navan handicap earlier this month, AIBELL can continue her improvement here taking this race and seeing off the challenge of stablemate, Song Of The Sky, the Jessica Harrington-trained Faughill in first-time cheekpieces and the potentially exciting Belle Free who could out-run her price in this contest.
  1. Aibell
  2. Song Of The Sky
  3. Faughill
