In depth

Verdict

Cruella Dovil has yet to win but was close up behind the in-form Mokhalad at Naas last month and has to be respected from her lowly spot in the weights. However, CLIFFTOP DANCER, who finished just in front of her in second, might have won in a few more strides and gets the vote in a very tight handicap. Little Clarinet was having only her second start for Joseph O'Brien when beaten a neck in a big field at Navan and today's slightly longer trip is in her favour while the three-year-old Sunset Nova was staying on strongly over 5f at Dundalk on his reappearance. Cuban Surfer ended her first campaign with a victory over a mile at Galway so may find this on the short side while Gopsies Daughter's three victories on the track have been over the minimum trip and she was behind the selection at Naas.
