In depth

Verdict

Tooreen Legend has won three times here and though absent for almost three years he's won first time back here twice. Uncle Henry returned from a spell of hurdling to run very well over this trip at Naas and he's won over this track and trip though probably prefers further. PARK ROW is in tremendous form having won three of his last four and though a 7lb rise makes things more difficult it may not be enough to prevent another victory. Dancing Doll gained the only victory of her career over the course and distance two year's ago but has dropped to her lowest ever mark and was staying on over 1m2f at Roscommon last time. Leaderboard is still a maiden but has been running well on Turf and is 5lb lower on the all-weather so has to be respected.
