Verdict

Espresso Lady had shown a little bit of promise on her opening runs and she was well supported to make it third time lucky at Navan where she was an impressive winner over Shadow Eile. She should be ready for this but will need to be as the opposition looks strong. Kick For Touch couldn't quite hold on at Cork after an easy victory on quicker ground at Roscommon but Joxer showed real battling qualities to score at Punchestown and will have come on for the experience. Moscow Mannon had shown potential at Down Royal before scoring at Galway and is another with prospects but it's MOONEY'S COTTAGE who gets the nod as he led for most of the way before passed by well regarded Are Yer Right Chief over a slightly longer trip here last month.
