Verdict

Sligo second Fastidious has won on the Polytrack so should handle this quicker surface. Limerick winner Earth Drummer is unexposed but doesn't look particularly well treated while the three-year-old Lady Ultra is 12lb higher than for her last win. Toccata Blue was running well on the all-weather off similar marks at the end of last year but needs to improve on a recent run at Naas. HI EMPEROR was a bit disappointing on a yielding surface at Naas last month but recouped losses on quicker ground at Fairyhouse 11 days ago and can go close again with a repeat effort.
