Verdict

TUDOR FASHION has found her form and looks the pick of these on her recent close second to Byerley Babe at Limerick. The Crafty Butcher may have been a shade unfortunate when strongly fancied at Downpatrick as he was forced wide when challenging. He looks a threat though Vergalda looks the main danger after staying on strongly over the minimum trip here last month. Jewel Star has shown potential on both starts and is another to consider.
