Verdict

Katie Walsh has been on board the winner twice in the past six years and today's mount Shantilly should have come on enough for her recent run at Fairyhouse to be considered. WHY ASK ME, three times a runner-up between the flags, was caught close home by Suntiep on her bumper debut here last month and though receiving a stone from the winner she's taken to go one better. The Bishops Niece and Pumped Up Kicks were both behind but should improve while Pops Well has shown enough ability to be given a chance despite a long absence. Girl In Blue is probably better than her form figures suggest and is one to keep an eye on in the betting.
