Verdict

FLARING FORTH hadn't shown much before attracting good support at Roscommon where she duly obliged. She's 6lb higher but has more to give and can complete the double. Samollie has never won on Turf but is well handicapped compared to his all-weather rating and his recent form suggests he'll be thereabouts. Sophies Echo doesn't win very often and struggled off her new mark at Dundalk last time after scoring there earlier. Smoke Charger is still a maiden and disappointed when favourite at Fairyhouse but Enough Is Enough would have a chance if getting a run from her reserve spot.
