Verdict

Ningbo Express has become disappointing and was beaten a long way behind LITTLE KING ROBIN at Killarney last month. She's a bit better off at the weights here but it might not be enough to turn the tables on Colin Bowe's mare, who gets the vote. Emily Gray is fairly exposed but ran a cracker behind As I Am in a Listed race at Cheltenham in April and can't be ignored. Fourni has run well on the Flat since winning a maiden at Punchestown but winning pointer Nevada Rose is likely to find things happening too quickly.
