Verdict

STOLEN MOMENT is hardly prolific but she signalled a return to form when faring best of those held up when fifth at Punchestown 6 weeks ago and she could be worth chancing to build on that from an easing mark. Low-mileage pair Native Gold and Getaway Shivvie are a couple of others to consider.

  1. STOLEN MOMENT (IRE)
  2. NATIVE GOLD (IRE)
  3. GETAWAY SHIVVIE (IRE)
