Verdict

Mamma Rosa has a long absence to overcome but is only 1lb higher than her victory at Tipperary in August. Adroit was conceding 6lb when beating CALORIE just under two lengths at Gowran in June but that was over 7f and the latter has improved since. She's well enough weighted to turn the tables and gets the vote. Antique Platinum showed promise on her debut and had little to do to land her maiden at Gowran. This is tougher but there should be much more to come from her in the future. Fantastic Dilly started favourite for a Leopardstown handicap in June but didn't show enough to be considered for this. Sea Coast is probably the main threat as she looked on the upgrade before being beaten in a much better class race at the Curragh where she didn't get the clearest of runs.
