Verdict

Little Sweetheart has been raised an incredible 14lb for her easy victory at Down Royal and her rider can only claim 2lb back. Suburban Sky, who was beaten six lengths into second, will be 15lb better off so must have a fine chance of reversing the form. Apache Gold has had 31 races but never over the minimum trip and though he's a front-runner a couple of these may prove too speedy. Blueberry Gal has been showing very good pace over this trip and it will be a surprise if she's not in the action from the start but a chance is taken with BEST BE CAREFUL. She won five times for Mark Usher in the UK and has joined a yard who know what they are doing so hopefully she'll be ready for this. Above The Law just failed to see out the 6f at Naas last time after a 7lb rise in the weights for his Dundalk victory.
