Verdict

THREE COLOURS RED (NAP) went up a massive 14lb for an easy victory at Sligo but it made no difference as he followed up a few days later in a lady riders' race over 1m4f here where he made all. He's up another 6lb but can complete a quick hat-trick. Prussian Eagle came with a late burst to lead close home over 1m4f at Tipperary but the winning hurdler could find this on the short side. However, Scottish raider Henpecked has been in such good form around this trip that she should get into contention. Maknificent tackles this trip for the first time but has been staying on strongly over a mile so should have no problems but the main threat could come from Super Focus, who was having his first start since April when staying on well over 7f here three weeks ago.
