Verdict

Little Clarinet was very unlucky to finish second last time out at Navan where she was just held by a neck. She is stepping up slightly in trip here which will suit her so she should be favoured ahead of Clifftop Dancer who could be there once again at the finish.
  1. Little Clarinet
  2. Clifftop Dancer
  3. Handsome Maverick
