Verdict

Secret Seven was having only his fourth start on the Flat when scoring over 1m4f at Tramore but a 10lb rise looks harsh. MONEY SPIDER looks to have a real chance of completing a hat-trick after her victory over this trip at Limerick, for which she's only gone up 4lb, so she's given the nod. Mutual Regard won five times for Sir Mark Prescott but looks on a high enough mark for his reappearance while Edge Of Sanity faded in the closing stages over 1m6f at Leopardstown and this is further. Drifting Mist is 17lb higher than her last victory but Ballyadam Brook, though better known as a hurdler these days, created a surprise when scoring at Listowel and has to come into the reckoning.
