Verdict

Mister Music Man, a winning bumper at Downpatrick in May, makes his handicap debut under Joseph O'Brien and must be considered. King's Road landed a similar event under a strong Ben Curtis ride at KIllarney but an 8lb rise looks harsh and NEWMARKET STORY looks the one to be on. The veteran ran very well behind Whatever It Takes at Tipperary last time on what was only her second start since October. Playdate is running well enough to be in the shake-up while Second Glance has been in good form on the Flat and over hurdles. Hassanali wasn't beaten far over a trip too short at Fairyhouse last week and has the benefit of Danny Mullins in the saddle.
