Verdict

Johnny Murtagh was an early booking for IRON MAJOR, on whom he's won several times. His mount went up 7lb for scoring at the Curragh in September but ran really well off his new mark on a return visit last month and can gain another success. Maude Adams has only run here twice and won one of them. She was behind the selection at the Curragh last month then found 1m2f and soft ground too much for her at Navan. Queen Of The Sand has never won over a mile but she's been staying on strongly over 7f and looks a threat to all despite being on her highest mark. Hes Our Music had been racing over much longer trips before scoring over the course and distance earlier this month but is now on his highest mark.
