Verdict

It's difficult to see past the four at the top of the card who are all penalised for scoring under Rules. Navan bumper winner Espresso Lady attempted to make all on her hurdling bow at Leopardstown last week and stayed on when headed. She'll be better for the experience while Tellherimnothere ran a superb race behind A Country Girl at Tramore last Saturday though today's ground could prove too testing for her. Galianna has returned in good form after more than a year off and her close second to Analyse That at Wexford suggested more to come but it's GLIBIN who gets the nod as she was travelling well at this trip before passed by the promising Oscars Business at Limerick and can finally get off the mark. Winning point-to-pointer Ask Me Sister looks best of the remainder.
