Verdict

Valley Queen has a touch of quality which she'll need conceding weight all round while Maal keeps finding one too good and has shot up 7lb in the process. Elusive Gent gained his first victory on his 23rd start at Down Royal and could have done without a 6lb rise though his rider's claim is a bonus. RECKLESS LAD hasn't had much experience and is gradually getting the hang of things so it's a surprise that the handicapper has dropped him 1lb and he can take advantage. Art Scene, who beat him at Tipperary, is poorly off at the weights and is overlooked.
