Verdict

Chosen Dream has won eight races between the flags and scored here in March before falling when there with a chance at Down Royal. Shake It Up had little trouble disposing of today's rival Kilna Shane over the track and trip a couple of weeks ago with St Killenagh a long way behind and if managing to get round without too many mistakes has to be a threat. THEATRE PRINCESS couldn't cope with Hurricane Ben when odds-on at Tramore but the winner has won even easier subsequently so the form looks strong enough for this.
