Verdict

Hail Shower didn't find much off the bridle at Listowel on Friday and hasn't raced over the minimum since spring of last year. He's also gone up another 7lb which may have opened the door for DOROTHY PARKER, who wasn't disgraced at Dundalk last month having won over this track and trip in July. Sword Of Light finished behind Hail Shower over 6f at Listowel last week and is thoroughly exposed but She's Not Simple has only had three starts and appreciated the drop back 6f when getting off the mark at a big price at Naas last time.
