Verdict

This looks very tight with only Borussia looking to have plenty to do. Elsie has a double penalty for her victories at Punchestown and Roscommon but she was impressive last time and will take some beating. However, BEACH OF FALESA, who was 8l behind her in the first of those races, has made good progress subsequently and easily reversed form with Ellaway Rose, who had also finished in front of her that day, at Wexford last time so she's handed the vote. Fourni has been running reasonably well on the Flat since completing a double in a bumper and a maiden hurdle and though Ourbeautifuldream hasn't run since August she'll love the fast ground and has plenty of decent form to her credit. Well Tuned is becoming expensive to follow and once again looked one-paced at Kilbeggan last week.
