Verdict

Dermot Weld runs both Pacelli Road and Highland Miss with the latter looking the more likely of the pair to go close as she showed potential at Roscommon last week where she didn't get the best of runs. Urban Seascape can improve while Eddie Lynam, who won this a year ago, is dually represented though Epic Encounter has only shown moderate form on Polytrack and the newcomer Zip Wire is likely to need the experience. QASSER has been a short-priced beaten favourite on his two most recent starts and they were back in May. His overall form is at a different level to these rivals, however, and Kevin Prendergast should have him ready to lose his maiden tag.
