Verdict

Love On Top gained her maiden success at Clonmel in October and has been competing at a high level subsequently, though she'll need to do better than when tailed off at Clonmel in April. Dual bumper winner PINK HAT finally came good over hurdles at Cork and though that was over the minimum trip she has always looked as though further would suit and this looks within her range. She's handed the vote though Princess Leya is progressing really well and steps up to this trip for the first time after making all and staying on strongly over the minimum at Limerick. But Queen Alphabet is a smart performer in the making and followed her excellent bumper form with an impressive hurdles victory on this track so she could prove the main threat.
