Verdict

PERFECT GODESS has the best proven form with a win at Sligo to her credit last month and may be able to fend off these less-exposed rivals on her handicap debut. Mount Meru could prove the best of those as he finished fourth over C&D on his penultimate start and first-time blinkers may bring about improvement, while Srucahan has claims on his recent third at Cork where he had Antiquus and Haseen well behind. The latter had finished well ahead of Dark Danger before that and Tohugo had Jkt Prince a couple of lengths behind when eighth at the Curragh last month.
