Verdict

Great Explorer has hardly been thrown in on his handicap debut and it wasn't much of a maiden he won at Fairyhouse but there's sure to be more to come from the son of Galileo. However, the same is likely to be the case for MIDFIELD GENERAL, who tackles this more suitable trip for the first time, and in receipt of 12lb he's handed the vote. Minister Of Mayhem looked in need of further when beaten over a mile at Bellewstown but looks high enough in the weights and Sweet Refusal has been disappointing on her last two starts after a good run over this trip at Clonmel.
