Verdict

Of the last 11 winners, only one has been drawn in double figures and most have come from the first five stalls. Primo Uomo made a very encouraging debut in the opening race of the new season at the Curragh, which has worked out well. Splashtop also made a promising start on the same track when she had Akeed Misk behind and though disappointing at Naas subsequently that didn't look her true form. SAUANNA BELLE showed the benefit of her opening run with a much better effort behind the well-regarded The Great War at Tipperary and can make enough progress to take this. Jim Bolger's newcomer Intenser will know his job but has to concede weight all round while Jack Naylor's dam has produced winners with her first three foals.
