Verdict

A typically competitive Leopardstown handicap with plenty holding chances. After she returned to form with a close second Highly Approved is on the shortlist & it is encouraging that Colin Keane retains the ride. Oneiroi was only a half-length behind her & is 1lb better off now so has a chance of reversing the form. Despite the 11lb rise, The Mpex Kid is a player after posting a career-best to shed his maiden tag and he is still lightly raced. Khafaaq posted a solid seasonal reappearance effort and is interesting in first-time blinkers but the vote goes to REVERBERATION who can defy this career high mark and complete the four-timer.
  1. Reverberation
  2. Highly Approved
  3. Khafaaq
