    Verdict

    Patrickswell won this a year ago and returned to form over 6f at Navan last week though he's now 12lb higher than when successful here and this looks tougher with GERALDINES LASS in such scintillating form. Willie McCreery's three-year-old only just got up to complete a double at Tipperary on the first day of the month but would have won easier but for being impeded and a 4lb rise looks lenient. Primalova was eight lengths behind her on a previous start at Navan but a massive 19lb turnaround in the weights gives her an obvious chance of reversing the form and she's a real threat while Yellow Dandy is also better off with the selection on that Tipperary run though she looks held.
