Verdict

Simply A Star was beaten narrowly by Accepted in a Listed event over the course and distance before a disappointing effort at Naas. Potential punters would need to ignore that last run but her overall form entitles her to the greatest respect and she had Sassy But Classy three lengths behind in that latter event and should confirm that form. FOLK LAW could only finish sixth in that Listed contest on this track but wasn't beaten far and only faded close home so with further progress likely looks the one to beat. Spirit Of Wedza had been showing good pace over further before dropping back to this trip at Bellewstown where he led for most of the way in a race that has worked out well.
