Verdict

The mare ELLIE MIA receives plenty of weight from most of her potential rivals and that should be good enough to see her home after a cracking run behind Morga at Cork where she was only headed close home. Sir Abbot is an obvious threat despite conceding 15lb as though beaten over timber at Leopardstown in January he ran well and has since landed a Ballinrobe bumper. Bentelimar was also beaten over timber before he landed some decent bets when slamming the opposition in a Tramore bumper. Little Rocky has won three times on the Flat for David Simcock and has shown plenty of ability for new connections while the Longchamp winner Shalamzar showed easily his best form to date over timber at Limerick last month. Ryansbrook needs a stiff test and if the ground turns heavy he could be in the firing-line.
