Verdict

This can go the way of PARK HIND, who went agonisingly close from 5 lb out of the handicap at Ballinrobe last month and with first-time cheekpieces applied to try eke out that bit extra, Andrew Lynch's mare can gain a breakthrough success. Motown Maggie ran her best race when runner-up at Ayr 4 months ago so she heads up the opposition on reappearance, with Aprils Joy and Some Dove also not discounted.

  1. PARK HIND (IRE)
  2. MOTOWN MAGGIE (IRE)
