Verdict

This won't take much winning and Fred Fenster may be good enough after a couple of promising runs last year though a long absence dampens enthusiasm. Mcmonagle has run well here in the past and reverts to sprinting after some moderate efforts over longer trips on turf. He should be in the frame but GOOD SHOT NOREEN looks the one to be on. Tommy Stack's filly wasn't beaten far by the very useful Rose Bonheur at Tipperary in April, form that would comfortably be too good for these rivals.
