Verdict

Gordon Elliott has some chances today and Steamboat Quay is amongst them, though this will be his first start over the trip and his one success came on good ground. Lockeen Girl make a quick reappearance after a poor run at Gowran on Friday though she will have found two miles much too short. Una's Pleasure has only had one start over the trip and was beaten a long way but BE MY VINNIE, who hasn't had much racing for his age, has found his form and can take this. He won over the trip on similar ground at Limerick in March and was having his first subsequent run when staying on over 2m4f at Ballinrobe last month. Ancient Empire disappointed in testing conditions at Sligo but The Rap Queen, who makes her handicap debut, has been running on over shorter in maidens so should get into the action.
