Verdict

Many in this contest are threatening to post a career best, but RAPHAEL left the impression there was plenty more to come after scoring comfortably on his final start of 2018 and provided he is fit enough to himself justice on his seasonal return, he can pick up where he left off last season.Star Quality does have race fitness on her side and showed definite improvement for the switch to her new yard when third on seasonal/stable debut over C&D. Another sizeable chunk of progression would entitle her to put it up to the selection, while Pillmakers Hill produced a career-best last time when belying 50-1 odds to come third at Leopardstown and he holds solid place claims.
  1. Raphael
  2. Star Quality
  3. Pillmakers Hill
