In depth

Verdict

AGUSTA GOLD has a penalty for her bumper victory on heavy ground at Tramore and disappointed when tackling 2m6f at Killarney, though an earlier effort when narrowly beaten on fast going at Wexford suggests this will be her day. Dalouga was a long way behind her at Killarney though that was her first start for almost a year and she should get much closer. Milomynit was engaged to run at Kilbeggan yesterday so the run should be monitored but dual Flat winner Steelyeyed hasn't been running well enough to consider.
