Verdict

The top five are all penalised for scoring over hurdles which may just allow RAILWAY ZIRA to make a winning debut over timber after her two bumper victories. Harry Kelly's mare looked a classy performer when scoring by 10 lengths at Fairyhouse in February and looks potentially useful. Chiltern Hills has already proved herself over timber and though her two recent victories have been over 2m4f she ran very well over this trip at Cork in March. Lady Of Glencoe beat Ellaway Rose two lengths at Punchestown in May and has continued to make progress but Tropical Three would prefer much more testing conditions, but if the ground turns heavy she would have to be considered.
