Verdict

Mater Matuta is the form pick but hasn't quite been getting home over a mile after attempting to make all. She may be ridden with more restraint and looks certain to go well but Scorched Earth has had his chances in handicaps and may have to settle for a place. Dermot Weld has won three of the last six and has two entries here with PROXY looking by far the best of the pair. A daughter of Frankel, she started favourite on her debut over a mile at Limerick a fortnight ago but was slowly away and never really got going until too late. She'll know much more here and can continue the stable's fine record in the race. Dundory was staying on strongly over an extended 7f at Tipperary last month and looks best of the remainder.
