Verdict

Ultra Cool is the only one of these to have won over the C&D but both career victories have come on ground with plenty of give. NOTGONNAGIVEUP showed some promise last year without quite managing to get there but looked ready to lose her maiden tag on her reappearance at Cork where she came home strongly over 6f behind West Coast Dream. She's 2lb higher here but can gain her first victory at the main expense of Flash McGahon, who has only won once in 40 starts but has gone close on numerous occasions and has Johnny Murtagh on board for the first time. Bold Thady Quill enjoys fast ground and should go well despite a long absence while Solent Ridge is another who should be suited by the conditions and he'll be fighting fit after a couple of recent runs.
