Verdict

Ana O'Brien's mount Fairylike is a consistent performer at this level but has won just once from 23 starts. Saratoga Baby appeared to enjoy dropping back to a mile when beating Mountrath three weeks ago and an 8lb rise makes life more difficult while Shukhov has struggled in the weights since winning here last month, though Colin Keane's claim is a bonus. ATMOSPHERIC HIGH is a really consistent performer at this level and has won three times on the track. Ian Brennan is excellent value for his 3lb claim and Eddie Lynam's charge can gain victory number four. Knight Of Bangkok has had little experience and makes his handicap debut but the presence of Joseph O'Brien in the saddle suggests he will attract attention.
