Verdict

This sharp track will play to the strengths of four-time Flat winner SIRJACK THOMAS, who posted his best effort yet in this sphere when fifth in a Punchestown handicap last time. He makes plenty of appeal off the same mark. Breezy Bell was ahead of the selection at Punchestown but she's been raised 2 lb and, morever, the slower ground here is not ideal. Union Park is most interesting ot the rest.

  1. SIRJACK THOMAS (IRE)
  2. BREEZY BELL (GER)
  3. UNION PARK (FR)
