Verdict

An opening-looking handicap with the vote going to BETTY ZANE, who promises to be suited by this step up in trip after shaping as if in need of a stiffer test when fourth on her handicap debut at Punchestown last month. De Lady In Red's opening mark looks a fair one judged on her Roscommon win and she remains unexposed, with Misty Millie another to consider back hurdling.

  1. BETTY ZANE (IRE)
  2. DE LADY IN RED (IRE)
  3. MISTY MILLIE (IRE)
