Verdict

The last six renewals have seen winners returned at 25/1 and 50/1 so backers beware. Dual winning bumper Ebazziyr made his debut under Flat rules in a Listed contest over 1m5f at Limerick in April where, after being outpaced early, he ran on well at the finish. He could probably do with some rain and may not be up to conceding weight to PINK HAT. Willie Mullins' mare, also a dual winning bumper, ended her hurdling campaign with two very convincing victories and should have enough pace to take this. What Lies Ahead won a Punchestown bumper on heavy ground and has never raced in quicker conditions while Gambling Girl was beaten a long way when runner-up at Tipperary last month.
