Verdict

Pleased As Punch posted a better effort in similar company at Clonmel and should be in the mix once again. Johnston's Best and Sweet Sylvia also made the frame on their latest starts and are others to consider along with handicap debutant Hard Fought. ROUTES DELIGHT won over these obstacles to land a double last month before struggling off an 8lb higher mark at Tipperary. But this looks less competitive and she's worth another chance back at this level.
