Verdict

Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh have several outstanding chances today and no doubt Champagne Agent will be expected to be amongst them but he's become extremely disappointing and contrived to get beaten when long odds-on at Wexford last time. His overall form would give him the edge but he's difficult to side with at present and SHERSHEWILL is handed the vote. She showed a bit of promise last season and reappeared with her best run to date at Down Royal earlier this month and her allowances plus her rider's claim can see her home. Shannon Spirit ran his best race to date over today's track and trip on heavy ground and he should be winning soon while Fire Belt makes a very quick reappearance after a promising return to action behind Champagne Fever at Cork on Sunday.
