Verdict

Grangeclare Rosa, a half-sister to several winners, is certain to come in for support given her connections and there are few with experience likely to trouble her. LISS UI RIAIN showed the benefit of a promising opening run with an improved effort behind the champion trainer's New Kid In Town at Roscommon. The form has already worked out well and John Kiely's mare can go one better. Ballet Dante has been making progress and ran well in a big field at Limerick while Cruisingdownriver ran on strongly when runner-up over the course and distance last month and with further progress likely she can get into the frame.
