Verdict

Global Freedom did best of the trio who finished behind For Everyone in a similar race at Ballinrobe but was only just in front of LAURA BULLION, who started favourite and finished strongly. Noel Meade's filly was making her debut and should have come on enough to reverse places and take this. Doyouthinkso, who dead-heated for fourth, had every chance and looks held but both Leahman and Clashaniska will have come on for their initial outings. Of the newcomers, Champagne Terri has been in winning form on the Flat and may prove best with her allowance and Conor Brassil's claim. Colfer Me is the highest rated of these on the Flat having won twice and hails from a yard that can do little wrong.
