Verdict

Jembatt scored over 5f at Tipperary last month but is equally effective over this trip and should be thereabouts if overcoming a wide draw. Diamond Daze could also have been better drawn and is creeping up the weights without winning while Indian Landing will have to break smartly to get a good position. Fastidious has been in good form on the Polytrack and has won on Turf and Seal Rock was second over 6f at Naas last week. VASONI finished just behind Diamond Daze and Jembatt last time but is better off at the weights with both and is a real Sligo specialist. She looks worth an interest today.
