Verdict

The ultra-consistent LEBLON looks the answer to this after her superb second to Tarla in a Grade 3 at Punchestown in April. She has performed well on fast ground and her overall form looks too strong for these rivals. Sherchanceit was having her first start since October when a head behind Cuchulains Son at Ballinrobe and is certain to have come on for the run while point-to-point and bumper winner Model County Lass was only headed in the dying strides by Chasing Clouds at Sligo and will prove a tough opponent. First Beauty was very impressive in a Limerick maiden and there is more to come from Dessie Hughes' mare.
