Verdict

Megan Carberry has ridden SAMOLLIE several times and her claim could see her mount gain his first success on Turf. Three times a winner on Polytrack, including off a mark of 60 in December, he can race from 49 here and looks very well in. September Lily gained a deserved first victory on Turf over tonight's rival Great Ability at Cork last week and should again be in the mix though her penalty takes her onto a huge weight. Packsapunch was in very good form on testing ground last summer and will have come on for his recent reappearance while Stoichkhov is running well though may just prefer another furlong.
