Verdict

It's rare to see Ballydoyle running two in a handicap. Egyptian Warrior started off in bumpers so the trip won't be a problem but he's looking a bit high in the weights and though JOHN CONSTABLE is tackling the trip for the first time he scored over 1m5f at Navan in May. He finished slightly lame when fancied for a Listed contest here last month and with this representing a big drop in class he's taken to go in again. Strandfield Lady has gone up 6lb for her Navan victory but is running so well at present that she has to be on the shortlist while the lightly-raced Snowmane followed an impressive victory over 1m2f at Down Royal with a fair effort when stepped up dramatically to this trip at Bellewstown.
