Verdict

This can go to Joseph O'Brien's MELLIFEROUS, who has shaped with plenty of promise in a trio of maidens this year and can strike on her first foray into handicaps. Top Line Tommy wasn't ideally placed when finishing sixth 3 weeks ago and could be the one to give the selection most to think about, ahead of Construct and Battle of Benburb in a typically competitive handicap.

  1. MELLIFEROUS (IRE)
