Verdict

Both Moth and Say are by Galileo and related to numerous winners. Either could take this on their debut but in the prevailing ground experience may prove the key and KERISA fits the bill. She showed the benefit of her opening run at the Curragh when returning there and finishing an excellent third to her well-regarded stablemate Tarana with today's rival Harmonic Note behind in fourth. With further progress likely she's given the nod though Morga could prove a threat as she showed up well for a long way on her debut at Dundalk. Madam Mo unseated her rider at the start in Tarana's race at the Curragh but ran well in a Listed contest there last month and is no forlorn hope here.
