In depth

Verdict

A much more competitive event than the first division with several coming into the race in good form including Chic Shanique, who stayed on strongly over 1m2f at Clonmel, her first start for new connections after a very long absence. One For Joules has been going well over hurdles, scoring at Tipperary last month, while Takasima wasn't caught until late when attempting to make all over this trip at Tramore recently. East Of Tara gained her first success when coming with a late burst to catch Badger Or Bust over 1m1f at Gowran. The longer trip shouldn't be a problem and she looks certain to go well. ACTION MASTER would undoubtedly be suited by further and was disappointing at Tramore last time but the very fast conditions could have been the reason and with better ground forecast this very useful hurdler looks well handicapped back on the Flat.
