Verdict

Eddie Lynam complicates matters by saddling Lady Mega, Caso Do Lago and Mr Good Guy, all with chances. However, BEAUTY'S FORTE, who was finishing so strongly when runner-up to Caso Do Lago over 7f here last month that it's a surprise to see him dropping down in trip, has a 10lb pull which looks enough to reverse the form and take this. The winner completed a double three weeks ago when Dark Skies was beaten around 5l. Lady Mega was receiving 15lb including jockeys allowance when successful over the course and distance last week and though Robbie Downey can claim his 7lb his mount may be a little high in the weights. Kilruane Shea showed real promise on his debut over 5f at Down Royal in May and though not quite matching that effort in subsequent starts he makes his handicap debut on a very lowly mark, as does Mr Good Guy, who is by no means the outsider of the Lynam trio.
