Verdict

The Patrick Martin-trained daughter of Dandy Man, VERY SMART has been in solid and consistent form for most of a busy campaign since March. The filly can get the better of the top weight, Jazz Lady, the Denis Hogan-trained, Conversant and course winner, Count Of Carabass. Chagall for the Edward Lynam yard and Ingelara, representing Joseph O'Brien can go well at a price in this wide open contest.
  1. Very Smart
  2. Conversant
  3. Count Of Carabass
