In depth

Verdict

CLONDAW WARRIOR, beaten in two point-to-points last month, will be a warm order here after an excellent second behind Golden Call in a Tipperary bumper and should score without too much fuss. Glimmer Star should prove the main threat under Nina Carberry as he was in touch when falling in a point at Necarne a couple of weeks ago. Shershewill was carried out on her debut between the flags before landing a mares' maiden at Kirkistown and should prove best of the remainder.
