Verdict

After running so well in a race far more competitive than this in Ireland last time MOXY MARES makes plenty of appeal to gain a second career success. Three-year-olds Catch My Breath and Creek Island could provide the sternest opposition with the former the more feared although Mark Johnston is always a force at this racecourse.
  1. Moxy Mares
  2. Catch My Breath
  3. Creek Island
