Verdict

Nabat Ali had looked a progressive filly before finishing last at Naas, which can't have been her true form. RIGHT UP MY STREET attracted strong support when making a winning debut in a maiden at Tramore and connections believe she could be Listed class - if they are correct she is thrown in off a mark of 78. She's given the verdict though Cyclone has to be a threat after his comeback victory at Navan where there looked much more to come. Empress Of Tara's only success came at Dundalk but she's an improving filly who can get involved while High Importance ran well over timber earlier this month and was only narrowly beaten in this last year.
