Verdict

STRANDFIELD LADY has an incredible record around here. She's won seven times on Turf - all of them on this track including this last year so has to be the selection as she's now dropped to a winnable mark. Bensoon was in excellent form at Dundalk before gaining his first victory on Turf on fast ground at Gowran where he caught today's rival Long Journey Home in the closing stages. He's still progressing so a 6lb weight rise shouldn't prevent another big run though the runner-up has to be considered at the revised weights. Abbey Vale is another very progressive type with the potential to land this while Listed winner Paene Magnus is taking a drop in grade.
