Verdict

CELERINA is a couple of pounds out of the handicap but is progressing enough to suggest she is capable of winning from higher marks and could be another for Wayne Lordan. Tommy Stack's filly was just touched off by the in-form Patrickswell here on the first day of the month and that was only the fifth start of her career. The winner has since finished a decent fourth over 7f at Roscommon and should be involved though the selection has more scope. Flash McGahon, who finished a close third in Patrickswell's race here, had every chance but is finding it difficult to get his head in front. Liberty Island has a real chance on his close second to Patrickswell at Down Royal in June as he was conceding 15lbs and has continued to run well. He should also take care of Dundalk winner Sampers on their recent run at Tipperary.
