Verdict

Jim Bolger runs a pair here and Fields Of May ran well enough on her debut at Galway to be considered the stable pick over Cruidin, though the latter hasn't run badly in either start. LOOPER was wearing a hood on her debut over 6f at Fairyhouse and has the headgear on again. She took a while to warm up but once getting the hang of the job stayed on very nicely behind the long odds-on Cape Clear Island and this longer trip can enable her to gain her first success. Not Really hasn't run since a disappointing debut when fancied at Dundalk in April but she's been given plenty of time and should have benefited from the experience.
