Verdict

Bint Nayef has done nothing wrong and the form of her close second to Keeping at Dundalk last month was given a boost when the third won earlier this week. Madam Mo makes a very quick reappearance after a fine run over 1m1f at Gowran on Wednesday though she's taking a big step-up in trip. SAY is still in all the classics and will need to win well here to justify the entries. She made a reasonable reappearance over 1m2f at Leopardstown where the stop-start pace didn't play to her strengths though she was staying on at the finish. She's given the nod as Silky Pyrus doesn't appear to have progressed much over the winter. Dermot Weld's newcomer Alkali is bred for middle-distances and is one to note but Zarma will need to have improved markedly from her Dundalk debut if she's to get involved.
