Verdict

This looks a race where the market should be studied. Coor Point appeared to find 2m4f beyond him when favourite at Down Royal on Friday but has plenty of weight for a maiden. Driveheron, runner-up in a big field at Clonmel, has subsequently run poorly on the Flat and the veteran Tin Town Boy hasn't won for over two years. Definite Knockoff has some decent form to his credit though probably prefers further and though Andalucia Lady has the form for this she would require some give in the ground to show her best if getting a run from her reserve spot. Chebona Bula has been struggling over timber though did manage to win over fences at Tramore last month but MARSHIM can give Barry Geraghty a successful ride as his only poor effort recently came on very heavy going at Tipperary and he ran well there on faster ground subsequently.
