Verdict

Alan Persse was on board when Aibell came with a late run to snatch victory over 1m2f at Navan but Joseph O'Brien's filly has never raced over this trip or on testing ground. Her stable companion SONG OF THE SKY completed a double on heavy going in the spring and has continued to run well off much higher marks. She had a run over hurdles last month and can return to winning ways. Faughill has never raced over the trip but was staying on strongly over an extended 1m2f at Roscommon and Tom Madden will give her a good ride. Lustful has been given a chance after being dropped 3lb despite a fair effort at Naas while Comeragh Haze was well supported when making her handicap debut at Sligo so better must have been expected.
