Verdict

SHANGHAI DRAGON was doing some good late work when fourth in a maiden at Navan last time, so better can be expected now returned to 7f off a reasonable opening mark. She's marginally preferred to fellow handicap debutant Volarossa, with Mumayaz also on the radar on the back of a good effort at Killarney 15 days ago.

  1. SHANGHAI DRAGON (IRE)
  2. VOLAROSSA (IRE)
  3. MUMAYAZ (IRE)
