Verdict

RED LASER won a division of this as a three-year-old and though not arriving in the best of form it wouldn't be a shock if he were to score again in a race full of moderate performers. He Holds Stoichkhov on their run here in January but Woodsophiesmile was a disappointment at Ballinrobe after scoring on heavy ground at Galway. Tough Lady should appreciate returning to Polytrack after a poor run on soft ground at Listowel while Apache Gold is generally thereabouts on Turf but has had little experience of this surface.
