Verdict

An open handicap but IT'S ALL A JOKE posted an excellent second at Fairyhouse last time and is fancied to go one better here. Basrah Breeze is still to get her head in front but arrives in very good order and is feared most ahead of recent Leopardstown scorer Sasvana.

  1. IT'S ALL A JOKE (IRE)
  2. BASRAH BREEZE (IRE)
  3. SASVANA
