Verdict

MORACANA did well to run down the strong-travelling runner-up and make a successful transition from maidens to handicaps on her return at Leopardstown in April, so she looks well worth keeping onside despite a 9 lb rise. Mashhoor shaped well on first start for his new yard at Cork last month and looks on a handy mark, with Overheer and Annexation others to consider in a highly-competitive handicap.

  1. MORACANA (IRE)
  2. MASHHOOR
  3. OVERHEER
