Verdict

Xsquared showed a bit more when beaten a couple of lengths at Galway last time with Liberty To Rock not that far behind and both could figure. Silly Dancer has claims on her fourth in better company at Leopardstown three runs ago and a case of sorts can be made for Desert Ben dropping in class. Blue Eyed Miss scored here last year and is back on the same mark for the first time since, but OVERSIGHTED posted a better effort when fourth over track and trip on his latest start and gets the vote with Johnny Murtagh taking over the reins.
