Verdict

PRIOMHBHEAN came from a long way back to edge out Putapriceonthat at Tipperary last month. Jim Bolger's filly has a progressive profile and it would be no surprise if she were to confirm the form with the runner-up, despite re-opposing on less favourable terms. Skyway has yet to finish outside the first three in five outings and should be prominent again while the return to a slightly longer trip won't faze Rock Critic, though the handicapper seems to have taken exception to his winning run. Charminamix and Lord Kenmare are old rivals but both look to be facing a stiff task at the weights against less exposed types.
