Verdict

Johnny Murtagh has acquired Dalkova from the UK and she'll have come on a lot for last month's run on very heavy ground at Gowran. Asgardella scored twice for Richard Fahey and has been highly tried in her two starts for new connections but Teocht, who had looked very promising at the end of last season, hasn't found her form yet. Odisseia showed good speed on her reappearance over a mile and that will have put her straight for this while Adelana is surely better than she showed when beaten by her sole opponent at Dundalk. It's difficult to know what to make of SEREZA but she treated a field of maidens with contempt at Gowran and a mark of 95 may well prove to be lenient so she's given the nod.
