A smart maiden. DAGODA made light of her odds at Leopardstown and experience must count for a lot on this ground. Sunniyra and Queen’s Speech are greatly feared.
This appeals as a really informative maiden. BASEMAN looks a nice prospect but faces many rivals with claims, including Champion Green, Sir Lamorak and Emprio, probably the most vulnerable of the quartet.
MISS MYERS has a touch of class on this ground and makes plenty of appeal, for all that this is deeply competitive. Rough Diamond is greatly feared.
PRAYING MANTIS (NAP) went well behind Sir Dotti and Breaking News at Gowran Park. She should come on from that experience with Gavin Ryan booked. Youceeyouceecee is rock-solid.
Very open, but MATILDA WITH ME looked last time like a drop to this trip would suit her, so can get the job done today with Colin Keane aboard. Kudbegood, Gregory’s Gift, Giorni Felice and Tyrion’s Dream are her main dangers, while Fall For A Kiss is a player if getting a run.
Having been beaten just a neck in a stronger race than this at Leopardstown last time, the in-form CALL ME DOLLY can go one better. Arctic Blaze wasn’t far behind her that day and can go well, while Sil Ver Klass, Arcland and Ally Cay are dangers.
This is the weaker division of this race. PERRY OWENS responded well to blinkers to win over hurdles at Galway recently and, if they work as well again, will take beating. Lady Ironside should go well on handicap debut, while Stellify and Duchess Ravenwaves are ones to note.
One thing that is almost guaranteed from GLOW WORM is consistency, and although she has yet to win a race, she will give supporters a run for their money, so she is a solid each-way pick. Loads have chances, including Clear Quartz, Pretty Boy Floyd, Teddy Boy and Mandolin Wind.
