Verdict

Tommy Stack has won this for the past two years and NERO EMPEROR can make it a hat-trick. Lightly-raced, he ran well when fourth in a tough handicap at Tipperary and was unlucky in-running when carrying a huge weight over 6f here last month. Yulong Baoju took a drop in class to today's rival My Good Brother at Dundalk and this is a much better race while Summer Isles also scored on Polytrack last time though she won so easily that a follow-up looks a distinct possibility. Sassaway finished runner-up in the race the selection was impeded and must be on the short-list as she's in the form of her life.
