Verdict

Hail Shower's only success came at Dundalk but she's improved on Turf recently and came close to beating Target Acquired at Galway last week, when Rock On Coco was just behind, after holding every chance. OUR MANEKINEKO has a similar record though he's been racing over further and just failed to hold the late thrust of Carenza over a mile at Leopardstown so hopefully he can hang on over this trip. Thefiddlerofduneen should also be suited by dropping back in trip having shown good pace over a mile on her last two starts.
