Verdict

Edamame could only finish second in a three-runner race three weeks ago but the winner, Prince Connoisseur, is quite well regarded so it could have been a fair effort. Shinyhappyjohn showed a bit more over the track and trip last time but was just behind Osuileabhain, who has since been well beaten. REPRESENT YOURSELF has been put in at a realistic claiming price and her close third over the course and distance in December has been given a boost by the subsequent victory of the runner-up. She should be up to this though watch the betting for Patty Paige, who has shown more promise than her form figures suggest and has changed stables.
