Verdict

Border Prince just didn't manage to last home over a mile here when last visiting, and should not be underestimated now if able to grab that initiative, though he'll have to overcome a wide draw to do so. Eleuthera has looked a reformed character in winning at Gowran Park and Tipperary lately but his record at this venue rather tempers any enthusiasm despite that well-being. Dandy Rock's best effort came around here, while the booking of Smullen to partner Scilly catches the eye. In a race where many have questions to answer, SECRET PATH gets the vote. She's just 2lb above her winning mark over C&D in December and should be in the mix having had a few recent turf runs to get her fitness in shape.
  1. Secret Path
  2. Border Prince
  3. Dandy Rock
