Verdict

Luisant is getting closer to his first success since 2010 though connections won't be happy with a 2lb rise for his run at Tipperary where he made Gordon Lord Byron pull out the stops. MY GIRL ANNA was just behind that day and is on the same mark. She was always in the firing-line and may have found the heavy ground too testing so gets the nod to gain just her second victory on Turf as though she finished behind An Saighdiur at Dundalk in March she has since reversed the form since and should do so again. Copper Dock is closely matched with An Saighdiur on Dundalk form and his last 13 starts have been at that all-weather venue. Chocolate Hills wasn't beaten far in a Listed contest in October and showed she had trained on with a good run at Cork though she meets older rivals this time.
