Forecast

Verdict
A race to be cautious in, but perhaps ABOVE US ONLY SKY can shed the maiden tag. Seamie Heffernan's mount was second over C&D on penultimate outing and has again run well since at Gowran Park. As long as the ground remains quick, she looks as likely as anything to go well. The Leopardstown comeback of Victorious Secret suggests a race of this nature could be within her grasp while cases can also be made for Silk Cravat, La Novia and Marylebone to go well.
