Verdict

Love In The Sun thrived on heavy ground at Cork last month when wearing first-time blinkers. She was fit from racing at Dundalk and, providing the headgear works again, she should make a bold bid from 6lb higher. Ineffable has been in fine form at Dundalk and only just failed to complete a double last month when caught in the dying strides. He's progressing nicely and a return to Turf shouldn't be a problem. POWER GRID (NAP) was having only his second start for Johnny Feane when conceding weight to higher-rated rivals in a Dundalk claimer last month. He's on an 8lb higher mark here but, providing he acts on the ground, still looks on a fairly treated so can complete a double for his up-and-coming yard. Dont Quit ended his first campaign with a very good run in a nursery here and has surprisingly been dropped 2lb so has to be respected.
