Verdict

An Saighdiur had a tremendous 2012 winning five times and was in superb form at this time a year ago. Not surprisingly he's on his highest ever mark now and may just need this after a long break. Almadaa has been raised 7lb for beating Harry Trotter here two weeks ago but can confirm the form as he looked to have a bit in hand. He also has the edge over Copper Dock on recent running and must go close. All Ablaze ended his first campaign with victories here and at Bellewstown but he's another with a long absence to overcome, a remark that also applies to ALLEGRA TAK but she is taken to land this as she's very well handicapped on her best form on Turf having scored at the Curragh last summer off a 7lb higher mark.
