Verdict

This is no better than division one and much depends on the performance of Coosan Belle at Downpatrick yesterday as she arrives after a very good run at Ballinrobe. PENNYS TUNE is still a maiden after a dozen starts but has run two very good races on fast ground at Wexford and looks well enough treated to finally get off the mark. The veteran Carheenlea last won a race in 2009 but that could be good enough in the context of this event though he was beaten a long way on his reappearance. Sherco Sports has shown promise just once, when Ruby Walsh was on board here last May, so any money for her in the market could be significant.
