Verdict

This looks a tough one to call with most of the entries progressing. Iniesta, who is by Galileo out of the high-class Red Evie, hasn't run since landing a Galway maiden in August which hasn't worked out but he's entered at Royal Ascot and in the Irish Derby so must be well thought of. Urban Moon went up 8lb for beating John Constable at Navan and couldn't quite cope on his next start here while Gentry will find this much tougher than the maiden he won at Roscommon. Asknotwhat was well behind John Constable at Navan earlier before making all for an astonishing 12-length victory in first-time blinkers at Tramore. If the headgear works again he'll take some catching but KABJOY may be the one to thwart the double. Jessica Harrington's lightly-raced filly found only the in-form Abby Cadabby too strong at Roscommon where she stayed on strongly over that 1m2f so this trip should prove ideal.
