Verdict

Beau Michael had a very hard race when just lasting out over 2m4f at Punchestown on Wednesday and this shorter trip isn't certain to suit. Clar Na Mionn was also in action at the Festival but didn't run well and an earlier effort behind today's rival BYERLEY BABE gives him plenty to do. The winner is in outstanding form and though only scrambling home over 2m3f at Cork last time she was travelling very easily at today's trip and should gain her fourth success in her last six starts in a race where race conditions are in her favour. Top Madam is a big threat as she landed a Grade 3 at Down Royal in November and didn't have much of a chance on her reappearance at Grade 1 level a month ago.
