Verdict

FROSTY BEACH for the Dermot Weld yard appears to be improving with every race and can grab a second career win here. The daughter of Footstepinthesand will look to follow up on her win at Naas last month and cement the already solid record of the yard in this contest. Trainer Ger Lyons has a similar strong record in the race landing the spoils with Espere last year and Tony The Gent in 2016 while Sacrificial won for the yard four years ago. Giga White can emerge as the biggest danger with Balefire and Insane Bolt battling for prize money.
  1. Frosty Beach
