Verdict

Plenty of winners on show though Posh Trish was awarded the race at Aintree last month having passed the post second to the progressive GRAGEELAGH GIRL. The latter was disqualified for interference but re-opposes on better terms today and gets a chance to put the record straight. Holding Pattern won at Thurles before beaten at Down Royal while compatriot Moonlight Escape opened her account at Galway for Gordon Elliott. Both Outofthisworld and Dory made winning starts and are preferred to Presenting Pearl and Rose Of Cimarron while Pineapple Rush is a newcomer to note.
