Verdict

After finding the highly talented Art Power too good two starts ago, MILLISLE built upon that encouraging effort to go one better in emphatic fashion when returning to winning ways at Naas. She will be very hard to beat on these terms, but Speak In Colours is not one to rule out quickly. He is a reliable yardstick at this level and despite having to concede weight away all round he is a smooth traveller who should be firmly on the scene returned to his favoured trip. Of the remainder, the improving pair of Glen Shiel and Sonaiyla have earned their place in this contest and it would be no surprise to see them feature prominently too.
  1. Millisle
