Verdict

MISS PERNICKETY can can build on her second of 14 at Limerick at the end of last month to land the spoils here. The Joseph O'Brien-trained mare wouldn't have to improve to much on that effort to get the better of the Paul Nolan-trained Tucanae, winner of a Limerick bumper on St Stephens day. Fort Worth Texas for trainer Colin Bowe and Little Token can compete for remaining prize money. The Willie Mullins-trained Hopefully the mount of Paul Townend should not be underestimated.
  1. Miss Pernickety
  2. Tucanae
