Verdict

Diamond Daze has now had 22 starts without winning and though looking on a winnable mark can hardly be trusted to get her head in front. Have A Nice Day has returned to form on soft ground and could do with plenty of rain but Last Minute Lisa has been hit with a 9lb rise for her all-the-way victory over tonight's rivals Notgonnagiveup and Missile Command at Gowran. BETTER VALUE was staying on well at the finish over 6f at Naas in July so it was a surprise when he turned up over the minimum trip at Dundalk. This looks his distance and he's taken to land a tricky contest in which the market could be a good guide.
