Verdict

ABOVE US ONLY SKY might be a temperamental maiden but she has plenty of good runs at Dundalk to her name, and from a career-low mark she is worth chancing starting out for Denis Hogan. Five Zeros made a fine return here 3 weeks ago and has a good shout if backing up that performance. Tai Sing Yeh should go well again.
