Verdict

The vote goes to FAG AN BEALACH, who was well on top at the finish when resuming winnings ways at Downpatrick in March. She wasn't seen to best effect at Punchestown recently and the booking of Rachael Blackmore adds to her appeal. Shady Operator, a faller in the Downpatrick race won by the selection, will be a threat granted a clear round, while Speak Easy and Space Cadet are others to consider.

  1. FAG AN BEALACH (IRE)
  2. SHADY OPERATOR (IRE)
  3. SPEAK EASY
