Verdict

In her last three runs over hurdles, ZUZKA has won twice at Grade 3 level and finished close up behind the outstanding Jezki in the Grade 1 Royal Bond at Fairyhouse. Although penalised, she looks the one to be on here. Her stablemate Glens Melody was over 6l behind her here last month and would be better suited by a longer trip while Jennies Jewel will need to show improvement after her narrow victory over Upazo at Naas. Oscars Joy may prove best of the remainder after she battled on to score at Fairyhouse.
