Verdict

GOPSIES DAUGHTER came here a year ago in good form and gained the first victory of a very successful campaign, scoring here again and twice at the Curragh. She's gradually dropped to a fair mark and showed a bit more dash on the latter track last time so gets the vote. Several of these ran in the race won easily by Takeachancejimmy here a week ago. The assessor has handed the winner a 10lb rise so this is tougher but he's in such good form that a follow-up has to be considered. Third and fourth-placed Teddy Boy and Art Of Unity must have reasonable chances of turning the tables at the revised weights while the three-year-old Cozy Sky caught the eye in no uncertain terms at Sligo where she got no sort of run and was only beaten just over 2l.
