Verdict

A tough handicap but LIZZIE BENNETT should give supporters a good run. A winner from a 4lbs higher mark than this, she has only run moderately on the flat but looked in tremendous form when scoring over timber at Clonmel a month ago and is at the right end of the handicap. Sugar Baby Love has been in fine form and this is her trip judging by an excellent victory over Maximo at Leopardstown in April. She is closely matched with third-placed Premier Rouge on that run but has much more scope. Maybe Grace won on her first start over today's trip at Fairyhouse but it was a very slowly-run affair and she's 8lbs higher here. Estephe looks a much bigger threat as she produced a fine run when third to Royal Astronomer at Leopardstown last month.
