Verdict

Empress Of Tara finished strongly over 1m2f at Down Royal last month before being touched off on the line over today's C&D two weeks later. She looks certain to be in the mix but one or two of these have more scope. Moo Sahara can improve from her opening run in May but could just need this after such a long break while Seducing was beaten a long way when runner-up to Angels Guard Thee at Roscommon though the very heavy ground was almost certainly responsible and this surface can bring about some improvement. URBAN BALL is by Galileo and was always likely to need middle-distances. She was slightly disappointing at Fairyhouse in June after a fine effort behind Zariyna at Gowran but looks just the type for this and is handed the vote.
