Verdict

The three-year-old Macnas showed nothing in her juvenile year nor on her reappearance at Gowran but produced a 20/1 shock on that track early this month for which she has been raised 10lbs. Kilmannin ran well on several occasions last season when the mud was flying including when scoring at the Curragh in October from an 8lbs lower mark. Desert Romance couldn't cope with a big weight rise after scoring at Dundalk in March while Cloud Fire, who showed promise at this time a year ago, finished last on her return to action at Leopardstown. Most of GRA GEAL MO CHROI's best form has been on ground with plenty of give but she looks well enough handicapped for a big run here after a fine reappearance behind Hawkhill at Limerick for which she has been raised just 1lb.
