Verdict

This is a low-grade handicap with only 5lb covering top to bottom. With their yard in outstanding form, the lightly-raced Cafe Con Leche and dual all-weather winner Red Phoenix are respected as is Starlite Dancer, who was headed on the line over this trip at Limerick. Raffaello completed a double when making all at Leopardstown and is just 4lb higher while Rehoboth Beach ran his best race so far at Killarney last time though was behind Imposing Supreme. The latter has finished second in four of his nine starts and has gone up in the weights again so the vote goes to DARE TO FLARE (NAP). Andy Slattery's charge has been steadily improving and the form of his victory over Rita Levi was given a boost when the runner-up scored here on Tuesday.
