Verdict

MERROIR probably would've prevailed over this C&D 16 days ago but for hanging and, providing she keeps a true line on this occasion, Joseph O'Brien's charge may well be the answer to this competitive-looking affair. The consistent Storm Steps should give another good account, while Sister Eliza is considered on the back of a solid effort here last time and Victory March is another to look out for.
