Verdict

Luisant won this in 2010 but hasn't been running up to that sort of level. He makes a quick reappearance having finished eighth at Dundalk on Friday. Devotion has had a disappointing season though there was a bit more spark when runner-up to Lilys Angel at Dundalk last time. The consistent Joe Eile deserves a crack at this level though he has plenty to find on official ratings with LADY WINGSHOT and Coolnagree. The pair were separated by less than a length when they met over 6f at the Curragh last month though neither got near the winner Katla. The former missed the break and was staying on so she looks the one to be on here as all three of her victories to date have been over today's trip.
