Verdict

DOMINETTA VITALI tackles her first handicap and is conceding weight all round but this isn't as competitive as the numbers might suggest and Myles Sunderland's mare, who has been showing promise in beginners' chases and has already won a point-to-point, looks the one to beat under Davy Russell. Blissful Moment has been a big disappointment over fences while Leading The Life isn't getting any younger but Leopardstown fourth Cherryantor might have place claims with a similar effort and Code Dancer hasn't been disgraced lately. She looks the pick of the remainder.
