Verdict

MIGHTY MEGGSIE showed improved form after 7 months off when a close second at Tramore 12 days ago and sets a clear standard. Dawn of The West showed ability on the Flat so is one to note on return/hurdles bow, while Aubretia is a player on the pick of her form.

  1. MIGHTY MEGGSIE (IRE)
  2. DAWN OF THE WEST (IRE)
  3. AUBRETIA (IRE)
