Verdict

Kevin Prendergast has won this twice in the past four years and will be hoping to make it three with MAUDE ADAMS, whose 7lb rise for her comeback victory at Cork is cancelled out by Gary Halpin's claim. This is a bit tougher but she's given the nod over Ondeafears, runner-up in a Listed contest last November and an excellent second in a tough Naas handicap on her reappearance when Imaginationrunwild wasn't far behind. Bunairgead has to be a big threat as she ended her first campaign with a victory at Leopardstown and was thought good enough to contest the 1000 Guineas Trial there two weeks ago. Romantic Stroll takes a big drop in trip and will need to do better.
