Verdict

Circling looked a nice prospect in her races at the Curragh in September and was made an odds-on favourite on her return at Dundalk in February but failed to cope with American Girl. The third won next time out so the form looks useful though she faces a stiff challenge. Tirghra has been threatening to win a race for some time but didn't appear to improve at Tipperary and was behind the newcomer SEREZA. Dermot Weld's filly never really got into the action but will know much more this time and can come out on top. Spirited didn't appear to have much chance at the Curragh last month but ran very well behind Answered and should improve enough to make her presence felt.
