Verdict

Ballinahow Lady has been going well over fences but it's a long time since she showed any form over timber. A Decent Excuse is definitely improving and though beaten in a better race at Clonmel last time she wasn't disgraced and should get involved. Drawn N Drank landed a maiden in very heavy ground at Navan and conditions will be in his favour but it's DAZZLERS DAY, who can hardly go any lower in the ratings and gained a surprise victory here yesterday, who is taken to go in again. Robbie McMahon, who finished third in that race, is another who should go well if allowed to take his chance.
