Verdict

Colin Keane has been snapped up to ride Bonnie Acclamation, who won well at Leopardstown last month, though a 10lb rise tempers enthusiasm for a repeat. Daring Man has had 34 starts on Turf without winning though he's gone close from this mark on several occasions and has the benefit of Ross Coakley in the saddle. Blue Mimosa had some strong form last season but hasn't seen a racecourse since October while Crystal Morning ran a shocker here last month after a cracking effort behind Golden Shoe at Galway. She can't have been at her best last time and shouldn't be dismissed but this can go to PHEBES WISH. He's done better on Polytrack over shorter distances so far but hasn't had much experience and with more scope than most is handed the vote under the very competent Shane Grey. The unexposed Storm Lightning is also worth a market check.
