Verdict

Testing conditions didn't appear to suit Where at Naas last week where she started odds-on but struggled home. Conditions are unlikely to be much better here and Monakova may do better after chasing home the long odds-on Parliament Square at Fairyhouse on Sunday. STARBRIGHT took a long time to warm to her task at Leopardstown but ran on nicely once the penny dropped. She can go one better though there are several choicely-bred newcomers entered including the expensive Wishing, a daughter of Danehill Dancer and closely related to numerous winners in France.
