Verdict

Angela's Dream has won three times over this trip, all on Turf, but was only beaten a head on her debut here in March of last year. She's high enough in the weights and LILY OF KENMARE, who was around three lengths behind her at Roscommon in July, has much the better of the weights this time and should take her revenge and land this. Sassaway is generally thereabouts and though she's never won on the surface she's run well on several occasions. Fulminata made her racecourse debut on this track but her winning form last month was gained on a sticky surface. Queen Of The Sand won here last November and on her reappearance at Gowran but is now looking a few pounds high as a consequence.
