Verdict

Competitive fare with the narrow vote in favour of ECLAT DE LUMIERE. Unsuited by the drop in trip when midfield in a Curragh handicap (7f) when last seen in June, her previous Fairyhouse third was a solid enough display and she can be expected to go well from a career-low mark. Free Flow and recent course scorer Slieve Binnian head up the dangers.
