Verdict

MARMOLATA hasn't quite come up to scratch over hurdles but was shaping up encouragingly when last seen on the Flat, so she gets the narrow vote in this tricky contest. Evening Primrose is bred to be much better than a mark of 66, so improvement from her would come as no surprise, while Commentariolus isn't one to be writing off just yet.

  1. MARMOLATA (IRE)
  2. EVENING PRIMROSE (IRE)
  3. COMMENTARIOLUS (IRE)
