Verdict

Gort Na Mona finally got off the mark in a C&D maiden a month ago but it was a moderate event and she faces tougher opposition here. Aragorn Rouge was conceding a stone to Fairy Wing when beaten less than a length over a mile last week and had won over this trip previously. He's an obvious threat while in such good form but Megan Carberry's claim may just swing things the way of SHAKE THE BUCKET. The young jockey gained her first success on Boots Madden's charge a fortnight ago and a 3lb rise will be no problem. Shisha Threesixty disappointed when fancied last week after his victory in January and Akinspirit may need the run after a break since October. Peggarty makes her handicap debut after showing potential but the betting is best watched.
