Verdict

Gordon Elliot will be hoping to come back with a winner via Oh Purple Reign, who bounced back to form at Gowran but a 9lb rise and a wide draw makes this much more difficult. Adamaris is up 6lb for scoring at Killarney but that was only his second start since December so further progress can be expected. He’s nicely berthed as is MONZOON, who has the inside stall and generally starts fast. A winner at the Curragh on his penultimate start, he just failed to hold Li Mu Bai at Navan after attempting to make all and can go in again. Oneiroi has been running well all summer and gained reward when making most over 1m1f at Leopardstown while Meishar was always travelling like a winner in a Dundalk claimer.
