Verdict

A low grade handicap and the market is best watched. Indy Gal looked very progressive when runner-up at Listowel in June but didn't run again. Rose Angel completed a double at Dundalk in November and, though beaten twice subsequently, should be considered from the same mark as her latest success. SRETAW is lightly-raced for his age and showed definite signs of strong progress when scoring twice last backend. He will have benefited from his reappearance on Polytrack in February and should be primed for this. Conan's Rock didn't run until last year and has only had five starts to date but shown that a race of this type is within his capabilities. Jim Bolger brings Sophisticated Heir out again quickly after his victory over 7f here on Sunday. A 5lb penalty shouldn't prove a problem nor should the longer trip so he's likely to provide the main threat.
