Verdict

De Mazzaro takes a drop in class having shaped well in the Greatwood at Cheltenham, and is one to consider, as is the lightly raced Exceeded Brief, and recent Dundalk winner The Mouse Doctor, but the handicapper has been generous with the mark given to MRS MILNER for her handicap debut, and she can overcome inexperience to follow up an impressive maiden win at Thurles.
  1. Mrs Milner
  2. De Mazzaro
  3. Exceeded Brief
