Verdict

SHELLYS CREEK is only 3lb higher than when beaten less a length by Lord Alfie over track and trip in April. Francis Flood's mare will go close if running up to the same level in this modest company. Hidden Present also returns from a lay-off and can figure on his best form, notably a fourth at Navan in March, but Mrs Henderson was still tailed off despite claiming third at Punchestown last month. The remainder are even harder to fancy on what little they've shown so far with Uno D'estruval and Shahrafi perhaps the best of them.
