Verdict

Spirit Of Concorde has clearly had his problems since making a promising debut at Navan just under a year ago. That third is the best form on offer in this but his yard has yet to really hit form whereas MISS EKATERINA hails from a stable already flying. Jim Bolger's filly has been off the track even longer and is fitted with a hood on her reappearance but she could just find the improvement to take this. Kalaroa was second to Euphrasia, who runs earlier in the card, at the Curragh in October but was beaten eight lengths while Somewhere was almost 10 lengths behind the winner over 2m at Dundalk in February.
