Verdict

Having not been seen to best effect on return here early last month, ELLABELLA went mightily close to shedding the maiden tag at Dundalk 17 days ago. She gets the narrow vote now tackling 1m for the first time, with Faraway Dreams, who ran well herself at Cork last time, and Vazzy others to consider.

  1. ELLABELLA (IRE)
  2. FARAWAY DREAMS (IRE)
  3. VAZZY (IRE)
