Verdict

6.30 Neither the race nor ground conditions are in favour of Whimsical, whose one Turf victory for Richard Hannon came on heavy going. Elusive Ridge began last season on a mark of 98 and he's 12lb lower in this rated event. He was conceding 9lb to Strait Of Zanzibar when beaten 10l at Bellewstown earlier this month and appears unlikely to reverse form with the winner, who has really struck form over the past few weeks. Arthur Moore will be hoping for plenty of rain for Harley's Harley, who rarely runs on anything but soft ground and completed a double under those conditions in the spring. If the going eases then she has an obvious chance but STAY DE NIGHT is taken to improve past them all. He won a very ordinary maiden at Limerick on his belated debut but was expected to do so as he attracted very strong support in the market.
