Verdict

Noel Meade holds a strong hand here, fielding leading candidates LUNAR POWER and Female Approach. Preference is for the former, who has yet to strike on turf but he's found just one too good on 4 of his last 5 starts, including twice here in June. Goodnight Kiss did the job well in a Bellewstown maiden recently and she merits respect now handicapping, while Monty's Way isn't one to write off.

  1. LUNAR POWER (IRE)
  2. FEMALE APPROACH (IRE)
  3. GOODNIGHT KISS (IRE)
