Verdict

HAVANA BREEZE finished runner up last season in this contest and given she can now race off a 4lb lower mark she is taken to break her maiden tag at the 15th time of asking on turf. The mare has put in two very reasonable performances this season to date and although sometimes not the easiest of rides, looks to have an excellent chance. Sharp Focus won this race last season and is another who has been in fair form of late and is quickly turned out after running a good race at Leopardstown at the weekend. Scorpion Black showed he still retains ability on a recent run and now looks temptingly handicapped.
