Verdict

Daisy Bell has looked better suited by an extra furlong on her two starts to date and may find a couple of these too quick on her debut for Patrick Prendergast. Mc Diamond showed his liking for the track with a good effort behind Cleveland Street three weeks ago and his young rider's claim is a bonus. Sassy But Classy showed plenty of dash on Turf and started favourite for a nursery here last month but couldn't go the pace, though she was less than three lengths behind the winner Folk Law. Well Done Me made her handicap debut here last week and though failing to get involved didn't get the clearest of runs. ZUNERA showed the benefit of her opening run at Listowel with a much better effort at Naas where she was always in the firing-line over the 6f. She only faded close home and if handling this surface should see off these rivals.
