    Verdict

    ELA KATRINA has been here three times since transferring from Roger Varian and won them all. She's up another 6lb but had plenty in hand last time and can go in again. Runner-up Construct, the third Paso Doble and fifth Tartlette all had every chance and don't look up to reversing the form. Tonkinese, four-times a winner on Turf, has had a dozen starts here without winning but recent Thurles winner Evening Primrose makes her debut on the surface and still looks to be lurking on a fair mark.
