Verdict

Three of these, FIONNUAR, Danzerini and Point Piper enter the fray in excellent form and the race looks between the trio. The former defied a massive 12lb rise for her easy Leopardstown victory by scoring again at Down Royal on Saturday and the assessor has raised her another 11lb. She can run here with a 5lb penalty and her young rider's claim takes another 10lb off so she has to be the selection. Danzerini has definitely improved on the fast ground and followed a fine effort in a big field at the Curragh by beating Saratgoga Baby at Navan so a 6lb rise looks reasonable. Point Piper showed his liking for quick ground with a convincing victory in a Leopardstown maiden and he'll be a big threat on his handicap debut. Susiescot hasn't performed well so far this season but could be a place prospect if rediscovering last year's form.
