Verdict

The veteran Duroob makes a quick reappearance after a very good second over fences at Kilbeggan on Friday as does LUCKY PIGEON, whose 4lb penalty for her victory on that card is more than offset by her rider's claim. She'd been running well and made most for a decisive victory, suggesting a follow-up looks on the cards. Lily Of Killarney is happiest on fast going as she proved when landing this a year ago. She had a run over fences recently to put her straight and another big effort is expected. Fast Exit hasn't won over timber but scored over fences on this track in June and is no forlorn hope to break his duck but Presenting Kate is back on the same mark as when gaining her only victory over hurdles and with Conor Maxwell's claim a bonus she has to be on the shortlist. Boherna Lady has been disappointing but is the type to pop up at any time.
