Verdict

A huge field but few can be seriously considered even on this very testing ground. Sarabad has been a short-priced beaten favourite five times since arriving from France and is sure to attract attention again. He's been looking one-paced and though likely to be in the firing-line once again he may have to give best to LUGHNASA. Robert Tyner's mare, a bumper winner at Cork last March, made a very encouraging debut over timber when runner-up to Midnight Oil back on that track a month ago and with that experience behind her can go one better. Royal Flight went into a few notebooks on her debut at Thurles and will have come on for the run while the well-connected Turica, a half-sister to four winners, is one to keep an eye on for the future.
