Verdict

Dermot Weld has won this four times but the amazing fact here is that the last four winners have been drawn in stall seven. Occupying that favoured berth this time is Andy Oliver's Anam Chara though she was bitterly disappointing when tried over a mile at Naas last time. Miss Eze is in brilliant form and a 5lbs penalty for scoring here on Tuesday shouldn't prevent another massive run while the consistent Blaze Brightly looks sure to give a good account of herself as she is by no means badly treated. Three-year-olds have easily the best record in this so it may be best to look to the younger brigade and SMART STRIKING fits the bill. John Oxx' filly looked a very nice prospect when landing her maiden in taking fashion at Leopardstown and she has much more to give. Fellow youngsters The Silver Crown and UK raider Jeannie Galloway are in great form and look major threats in an open contest.
