Verdict

Wellmarked won this in 2011 and is the only course and distance winner in the line-up, though he was confined to Polytrack when last seen at the turn of the year. CITY OF CULTURE has had very little racing for her age and looks to be progressing judged on her close second to Big Bad Lily at Navan. She could have done without a 4lb rise but Colin Keane's claim takes care of most of that and the combination can prove up to the task. Blistering Dancer will enjoy the conditions and, though he has never raced over the minimum trip, he generally shows enough pace to get involved. Enter The Red has never won in 17 starts but will be suited by the ground and must be on the short-list but Chillie Billie is another long-standing maiden and was behind the selection at Navan.
