Verdict

A competitive mares handicap which can go to KLASSY KAY, who shaped as if still in good form for a long way before falling late on at Fairyhouse last month and can get back to winning ways with her mark easing a touch. Coulonces is feared most on handicap bow having scored on first start for her new yard last month, ahead of Irregularheartbeat and English-raider Pure Bliss.
