Verdict

Several in with chances here but preference is for sole 4-y-o ZOFFANIEN, who arguably shaped best at the weights when runner-up at Cork 12 days ago and is taken to go one better with Rachael Blackmore booked to ride. Bythesametoken had plenty go his way when scoring at Wexford last month but is feared most nonetheless, ahead of Silver Star and Humaniste.
