Verdict

MELANIPPE is an obvious choice but looks hard to oppose after landing two victories over 1m4f on quick ground. After an easy Tramore success, she was all-out to follow up at Fairyhouse 12 days later off a 9lb higher mark but has had a nice break since. With conditions to suit, she is taken to complete the hat-trick despite a further 4lb hike. Rock N Rover is an each-way possible off bottom weight while Hypatia could be interesting on this handicap bow after showing some promise in maiden company. Longshadow is far more exposed but respected but the jury is out regarding Right Up My Street after he followed up a winning Tramore maiden debut with a low-key performance at Down Royal.
