Verdict

Lyrical Attraction was having only her second start on Turf when storming away with a Cork handicap over this trip. Not surprisingly she's been raised 9lb but looks capable of going on to better things. However, RED GERRY, who was conceding her 13lb when beaten 2l into fourth at Dundalk earlier, then improved to chase home Blenheim Palace at Navan and the winner went on to finish second to Broome in the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial so Noel Meade's charge looks the one to beat. Engles Rock came with a late run to catch the in-form Meryems Way at Listowel though that was over 7f, the furthest she ever raced over. Heavenly Snow is up 7lb for a comfortable victory on her handicap debut at Roscommon on Monday while Isotope followed his victory at Cork with a decent run in a much better race there.
