Verdict

Catwilldo won this in 2015 and NORA BATT (NAP) a year later. The latter has slipped to a very handy mark after several runs on unsuitable ground and was unlucky in-running when beaten in a three-way photo behind tonight's rivals Jenniechild and Elegant Emmeline at Tipperary last week. She can turn the tables with that pair and land this though Nightflight ran very well over 6f at Naas last time and will be losing his maiden tag before long. Haqeeba was headed on the line by Blastofmagic at Naas and the pair meet on the same terms.
