Verdict

Joseph O'Brien has chosen the once-raced Moth over stablemate One True Love but it's surprising to see the daughter of Galileo over this trip after making her debut over a mile at Navan. One True Love is also dropping in distance having raced over a mile at Dundalk but it's about time SLOPE was winning and this looks her day. She has been performing in much better company and there was no disgrace in being beaten 3l by Gift From Heaven at Fairyhouse last time. Kevin Prendergast has won this three times in recent years so the newcomer Fitrah is one to keep an eye on as is Dermot Weld's Shunned, who is a half-sister to three winners.
