Verdict

Voyageofdiscovery continues to knock hard on the door for a win this term and should have it soon, while Sharp Focus posted improved form last time over a longer trip at Tipperary and will have a say of coping with this sharper assignment. There are a couple of handicap debutants that stand out, with Coolbawn Magic interesting starting out for Shark Hanlon , but the vote goes to BALLETTO, the Kodiac filly having improved on her first run for Emmet Mullins last time. An opening mark of 59 may prove to underestimate her. Lady Scathach and Nam are others with form to go well.
  1. Balletto
