Verdict

This is a low-grade event and looks an opportunity for EVERYTHING ZAIN to get off the mark on the Flat having already scored over hurdles. Dessie Hughes' charge was absent for almost all of last year but has returned in good heart and was beaten only 2l in a huge field over hurdles at the Punchestown Festival. Streak made a successful debut for David Lanigan at Lingfield in December 2012 but only ran twice subsequently for the yard. She made a fair debut over hurdles for new connections but was then totally outclassed in the Grade 1 Champion Four-Year-Old Hurdle at Punchestown. Invincible Don has won three races in his career, all on very fast ground, while recent Dundalk winner Boronia will be having her first start on Turf since finishing last on her debut at Naas a year ago. Blue Ridge Lane is just 3lb higher than his last winning mark and may prove best of the remainder.
