Verdict

Preference in this competitive handicap is for SLEEPY HEAD, who shaped as though returning to the boil over C&D on her third start following a 16-month layoff and she has been given a chance by the assessor (now 7 lb below last winning mark). The in-form Irish Poseidon is an obvious danger, while Erytheia, Clonard Abbey and Stellify, a recent winner at the Curragh, are others to consider.

  1. SLEEPY HEAD (IRE)
  2. IRISH POSEIDON (GER)
  3. ERYTHEIA (IRE)
