Verdict

Johnny Lynch made a promising start over 7f at Leopardstown and was made favourite over the same trip at Listowel but ran poorly. Howdoyoufindthered twice ran well over this trip before finding 7f too far on heavy ground at the Curragh so she should be suited by dropping back though QUADRIGA may have too much pace for her. He's attempted to make all on all three starts to date and was only headed at the furlong pole over 6f at the Curragh on his latest start in August - he can lead all the way here.
