Verdict

A low-grade handicap where it could pay to watch the market. Jim Bolger runs two and though SCEILG showed little in her first season she was always more likely to do better as a three-year-old and a mark of 61 may prove lenient enough to make a successful reappearance. Kevin Manning chooses her over Mac Lir, who showed a bit more promise at Dundalk in December. Todd ran well behind Indiana Charmer at Dundalk but that was over a mile and he was behind today's rival Relay over that track and trip in February. Randall's Alannah has run in better company but was beaten a long way on her reappearance at Leopardstown.
