Verdict

PORT MERRION is only a pound higher than when second on her handicap debut at Listowel and must have every chance of going one better. Namurian Sunset won over course and distance last month but has been a little disappointing since while Taqarrob doesn't appear to be improving. Mansuri was beaten at Leopardstown on Thursday and Teoleena and Nieve both have a bit to prove as well.
