Verdict

An excellent turnout for this nice prize. Slieveardagh scored over the C&D in May before a fine effort in the Galway Hurdle and that form has already been given a boost though he is very closely matched with Cloone Rocket on their 1-2 at Cork at the beginning of the month. Cooper's Crest is an improving type who may just have found 2m4f stretching her stamina when runner-up to Persian Gayle at Galway. Wikaala has progressed into a very useful hurdler as he showed when beating Gudnis Gracious Me at Tramore and he should go close but this can go to SHERCHANCEIT. Mary O'Connor's mare had Total Excitement just over two lengths behind when scoring over the C&D last month and this progressive type looks capable of winning from a higher mark.
