Verdict

Regal Power, Brown Butterfly and Mona Brown were all a little disappointing last time but the first-named did have Lake George behind when scoring over 6f here earlier in the month. Enigma Code is running well while Rain God should have benefited from his run at Naas and the blinkers are back on here. TARGET ACQUIRED was just outstayed by Mordanmijobsworth at Naas on Wednesday so the drop back to 7f, the distance over which he won at Cork earlier, should suit and he can take advantage of his low weight. Eastern Rules has never won on Turf but could have place claims and Chester scorer Bethany Bay looks best of the rest.
