Verdict

Gun Shoot gained his first success on Turf at Fairyhouse where he stayed on strongly over the 1m2f so this longer trip will be in his favour. BLUE RIDGE LANE had been running very well before failing to act for an amateur at the Curragh and is very much better than that. Shane Foley takes over and has won on him previously so the combination can return to winning ways. Master Melody has yet to win on Turf but has dropped to a lowly mark and produced his best run for a while at Dundalk last time where he had Flowing Air behind.
