Verdict

Mr Bounty reverted to Turf at Navan and beat a huge field on ground with some give. He's up 6lb and twice finished behind Times In Anatefka in November. HI EMPRESS was only beaten a head by the latter over 5f on one of those occasions and though she's still a maiden this looks a good opportunity to finally get off the mark. Cappadocia is much happier on this track than Turf so his last run should be ignored and he holds Suburban Sky on their running here last month. The veteran Enigma Code hasn't won for a long time but has changed stables and his new handler will attempt to exploit a falling handicap mark.
