Verdict

BYRON BEAUTY came in for strong support at Killarney last week and though unable to peg back Ridestan she stayed on well enough to suggest she can gain her first ever victory over this longer trip. Aussie Guest finished a couple of lengths behind and looks held while Hangar Five was badly impeded and never in contention. Ariahey had only shown glimpses of ability before gaining a surprise success over 1m6f at Bellewstown. He's up 5lb but is still on a lowly mark and looks a danger. Duarte Fernandes has been beaten a long way in his last two starts while Undecided is still looking a few pounds high in the ratings and would prefer some give in the ground. Easter Spirit made a promising handicap debut at Tipperary last month and should have more improvement in him.
