Exceeded Brief (11/2), Dollys Destination (13/2), The Mouse Doctor (7/1), Ena Baie (8/1), Fauguernon (9/1), Riverdene (10/1), Prosecution (12/1), De Mazzaro (12/1), Mrs Milner (14/1), Father Ailbe (16/1), Rightplacerightime (16/1), Dessie's Diamond (16/1), Email Rose (16/1), Andalusa (20/1), Rare Conor (25/1), Fenta Des Obeaux (25/1), Jon Ess (25/1), Nibiru (25/1), Accidental Rebel (33/1), Colour Me In (33/1), Lucky Phil (33/1), Song Of Namibia (40/1), Volatile Lady (50/1), Gambling Mistress (50/1), Stormy Tale (66/1), Storm Flight (66/1)

Verdict
De Mazzaro takes a drop in class having shaped well in the Greatwood at Cheltenham, and is one to consider, as is the lightly raced Exceeded Brief, and recent Dundalk winner The Mouse Doctor, but the handicapper has been generous with the mark given to MRS MILNER for her handicap debut, and she can overcome inexperience to follow up an impressive maiden win at Thurles.
  1. Mrs Milner
  2. De Mazzaro
  3. Exceeded Brief
