Verdict

After a good run over 1m6f at Wexford, Blue Ridge Lane ran poorly at Tramore and hasn't won on Turf since 2009. Invincible Don has been hurdling and appreciated stepping up to 1m6f at Tramore where he appeared to need every yard of the trip. Mellow Manner's only success came over a mile and she ran poorly over hurdles last summer. Surf's Up has now gone 24 races without winning so a chance is taken with HURRICANE SEASON, who appeared to be improving at Dundalk in the spring after a long break and is on a very lowly mark.
