Verdict

She's A Star completed a hat-trick on the Flat and over hurdles around this time a year ago and should again give a good account while Ligeti bounced back to form over track and trip a fortnight ago, though has been well beaten over hurdles subsequently. Dancing Doll was beaten a head by Ligeti here and has to have a chance of reversing the form on the revised terms but this can go to THUNDER CRASH (NAP). Ger Lyons' charge, a winner at Fairyhouse in June, was having only the sixth start of his career when just failing to match strides with On The Go Again at Belleswstown and the winner, who has completed a four-timer, is now rated 96. Nearly Famous wasn't beaten far here last time after landing a claimer while All Of Me hails from a yard in form and found 1m2f too short at Fairyhouse after a victory over this trip at Tramore.
