Verdict

IMPERIAL CHOICE is on a roll so is fancied to defy a 13 lb hike in the weights and complete a quick hat-trick at the chief expense of Buttons And Bows, who is on a handy mark if stepping up on her recent Galway run. Powersbomb appeals as the pick of the remainder now he reverts to hurdling.
