Verdict

The John Oxx-trained Sebs Star could have a few of these in trouble by half-way given the Kyllachy gelding is expected to set a good clip in the early stages. That tactic could set the race up for the daughter of Starspangledbanner, HIJA DE LA LUNA to land the spoils on her first turf start. The filly, with notable jockey booking, can get the better of Feelfreetojumpin and the Willie McCreery-trained Musical Rue who finished third of eight runners on her last start at Bellewstown over a similar trip earlier this month.
  1. Hija De La Luna
  2. Feelfreetojumpin
  3. Sebs Star
