Verdict

GALIVANT is hard to oppose and will consequently start a short-price here. She just failed to get her head in front on soft ground over C&D three weeks ago and it will be a big surprise if John Hills' filly gets beaten in this company. Band Of Thunder finished well behind the selection last time and Cluain Dara never threatened on her debut over track and trip though she should improve for the experience. Captain Sharpe's best efforts came over shorter trips and the newcomer Ballina Blue makes no appeal.
