Verdict

Killourney Empress has never raced on fast ground in her 16-run career and her three victories have come with plenty of give so she'll need some rain. Lilly The Lioness has gone up 10lb for her first ever victory on her 29th start at Tipperary but that's no surprise as she won by 7l over that 1m4f trip. The maiden Byron Beauty has been going quite well and should do better over this trip after failing to stay 1m6f last time though she was earlier just behind Hangar Five at Fairyhouse and there's no reason for a reversal of that form. RIDESTAN reverts to the Flat after a very easy victory over timber at Clonmel and a mark of 55 is probably nowhere near his ability so he should complete the double.
