Verdict

Easy Vic has twice been a short-priced beaten favourite since disqualified from first place at Limerick in May and has yet to prove himself on ground this fast. COOSAN BELLE has won just once in 21 starts over timber but that was on very fast ground from a 3lb higher mark so she's given the nod in a moderate contest. Baby's Hot had been looking as though her turn was due before beaten when fancied at Bellewstown on Sunday though she may do better over this slightly shorter trip but Personal Shopper appears to need softer conditions.
