Verdict

Nurse Ryan is becoming hard to catch right and Beau Michael is proving far more effective with a set of hurdles to conquer at present. Invincible Don and Sword Of Honour were first and third over this trip at Tramore last time and the revised weights offer the latter a decent shot at revenge this time around. However, the former has a more straightforward attitude and still makes greater appeal although both are taken on with LADY IMOLA. She was noted staying on quite nicely over a mile and a half in a Curragh handicap last time behind Majenta and this extra quarter of a mile should be very much in her favour with forecast ground conditions also expected to suit the Condon mare.
