Verdict

Samantha Bell has been making a name for herself here during the winter so her booking for Paul Deegan's Felina is a pointer though her mount's victory came on soft ground at Cork. An Saighdiur had Copper Dock just over a length back in third and QUEEN GRACE behind in fourth when gaining his third victory of the year over the C&D last month but it's the latter, who was having her first run since scoring at Wolverhampton in October, who can come out on top this time and take this. Calm Bay finished last in that event but is very much better than that and significant improvement is expected. Big Bad Lily was in superb form last September but hasn't been seen since the following month and may just need this.
