Verdict

Keep Believing has won around here from a much higher mark on heavy going so any further rain would put him right in the picture. Button Popper is the other course and distance winner in the line-up and is 2lb lower so she looks capable of a good run under the experienced Ben Coen. Lake George is 7-59 on Turf and has never won on the all-weather so it was a fair reappearance at Dundalk and he's on a decent mark nowadays. KUDBEGOOD has never won but hasn't been beaten far in any of his four starts at Gowran this season. His stable is in excellent form and regular rider Ross Coakley is on board to he's taken to lose his maiden tag. Amazing One has never won on Turf and looks a few pounds high.
