Verdict

Connections of KILLOURNEY EMPRESS will be hoping for some rain as it was soft ground when she scored at Sligo on Tuesday. She won with a bit in hand and a 5lb penalty shouldn't be enough to prevent a quick double. Blue Ridge Lane doesn't win very often but he's only 1lb higher than his last winning mark so should get into the mix along with Mahrajaan, who ran very well over hurdles at Tipperary early this month. Saturday Night found plenty of improvement when a close third to All About Timing in a Fairyhouse handicap a couple of weeks ago and wouldn't need much more to get involved here.
