Verdict

Four three-year-olds take on a couple of older horses in this but there hasn't been much encouragement among the younger brigade recently. Miss Gally Rio having lost her way since winning at Limerick in April, though perhaps Taaluf has some scope after just the four runs. VERSILIA GAL is 5lb lower than when winning this last year and Conor Hoban claims a further 3lb. She ran well here last month and can stage a repeat. Flic Flac is only a pound higher than when second at Leopardstown in March but turned in a shocker in a better race at Cork next time.
