Verdict

Gra Geal Mo Chroi has won five times in her career - all on ground with plenty of give - and she's unlikely to get those conditions here. The only three-year-old in the line-up, Belleau, is entitled to the greatest respect as she comes out top of the ratings at the weights but she hasn't been in the best of form recently and is overlooked in favour of CURL CAT. He's had a total of 21 starts and never raced beyond a mile but all of his recent runs have suggested he's been crying out for the trip and he's taken to concede weight all round. Rocky's Pride looks best of the remainder.
