Verdict

The manner of the win of HELIAC at Cork, in May over a similar trip, left no doubt that there was plenty left in the tank in the shadows of the post. The Ger Lyons-trained filly can improve again in this company to see off the attentions of potentially progressive type, Laura Bullion for the Noel Meade yard and Curragh third Sky Seven.
