Verdict

The three-year-old Paloma Blanca has shown ability in maidens and the presence of Johnny Murtagh in the saddle is a bonus as she makes her handicap debut. Crowning Moment came with a powerful late run to score over 1m3f at Killarney on Monday and a 5lbs penalty shouldn't prevent another big effort though third-placed Sovento is that much better off and has a realistic chance to reverse the form. MY BLUE HEAVEN has been unfortunate not to lose her maiden tag and ran into a very well-treated rival in Barndeh at Sligo. That was her best run to date and she's slipped to a mark from which she can gain her first success. Third-placed Clare Glen looks held as does Forest Minx, who never got into the action.
