Verdict

Lone Star signalled that he was ready to win soon with a good run at Dundalk in January and returned there to lose his maiden tag in very easy fashion a month later, though the form has worked out very poorly. He's likely to be a short price here and looks vulnerable so it may pay to take a chance with TEOLEENA. Jim Bolger's filly is bred for middle distances so she did well enough in her first campaign over trips much too short. Tom Dooley has yet to win a race but has done enough over a mile to suggest stepping up in trip will see him in a better light. Mystic Princess hails from a yard in top form and may do best of the remainder.
