This has been a decent race for three-year-olds in the past. Flower Bouquet is making her handicap debut and her young jockey is having her first ride in public. She's not badly handicapped but BENALEX PARK has the benefit of the experienced Ricky Doyle in the saddle and has progressed as he's stepped up in trip. He was behind Daisy Mountain at Tipperary last month but that was over 7f and he stayed on strongly to score over a mile at Killarney. He's handed the vote though Marlos Moment will love the conditions though his latest success came over 1m6f and this could prove on the short side. Silver Shuffle has only won once in 26 starts but would have a fine chance on his close third to Zariyna over the C&D in July while the maiden Dayrina is at the right end of the handicap and didn't enjoy racing on Polytrack last time.
