Verdict

A well-contested handicap. WILL YOU WIN returned to form in first-time cheekpeces when fourth on her belated handicap debut at Gowran last week and may be the answer if building on that. Ask The Leader, Courting Vickie and Rossies Tara are just a trio of potential threats.

  1. WILL YOU WIN (IRE)
  2. ASK THE LEADER (IRE)
  3. COURTING VICKIE (IRE)
