Verdict

Verus Delicia is having her first start in Ireland and she'd prefer the ground to dry out but Oor Jock acts on any going and didn't get the run of the race here last week. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him bounce back but Dynamite Dixie has never raced over a trip this short. INVINCIBLE RIDGE hasn't won since completing a double for Richard Hannon in 2012 but has run very well on his last two starts and is given the nod in a very difficult handicap to sum up. She's Not Simple hasn't had too much experience and though winning well from Big Bad Lily at Naas she's been hit with a 9lb rise. Lake George and Hatton Cross would both prefer an extra furlong.
