Verdict

Silver Lightening made a promising debut at the Curragh and started long odds-on at Limerick but ran poorly and is best watched for now. Tobann attempted to make all on her comeback over this trip at the Curragh three weeks ago and didn't fade until the final furlong so should strip fitter and will take some catching. Dermot Weld has been amongst the winners and COCKTAIL HOUR showed enough in her first season to suggest she can take this, especially as her best runs came on testing ground. Dusty In Memphis showed a bit of promise in two Polytrack starts and should do better on Turf.
