Verdict

SIMPLY A STAR has attempted to make all in her last two starts over 7f and faded close home so she should be more at home over this trip. She was caught by Pleascach at Leopardstown last time and that winner could be very useful as she finished in front of Avenue Montaigne on her debut in a Group 3 at the Curragh. Accepted has a penalty to carry for his victory at the Curragh where he held on well over that 6f after quickening into the lead. He'll be difficult to keep out of the frame while Arriana had run really well behind useful opposition before landing a Bellewstown maiden last weekend.
