Verdict

Punters beware - not one favourite has won this in the past 10 years. Sharisse was a 16/1 chance when successful a year ago and is 7lb higher but looks to have been primed for a repeat and a big run is expected. Radharcnafarraige has been racing exclusively in Group company since losing her maiden tag last May and though she seemed happy when dropped back to 6f at Leopardstown this trip is no concern to her and she must be on the short-list. Both of Headford Lady's victories have been over today's trip and she showed her versatility with a good second over 1m2f at Down Royal last week. Mesariya comes down to earth after twice finishing behind Banimpire at Group 3 level but this can go to the rapidly improving MARVADA, who came from a very unpromising position to complete a double at Limerick and will be ideally suited by what is certain to be a strongly run contest.
