Verdict

A very tough handicap for punters to unravel but To The Sky will attract support after his impressive victory at the Curragh though an 8lb rise may just be enough to stop him. Daigreen has shot up the weights since his two victories at Ballinrobe and might just be a few pounds high so it's VALBUCCA who is given the vote. Still a maiden after 16 starts, she's finished runner-up on several occasions though there's nothing wrong with her enthusiasm and she ran really well at Galway last time when Salacious Sally and Leroy Parker were behind. Mahaazen won on heavy ground as a juvenile and has to be respected despite being a beaten favourite on her two latest starts but Purple soon capitulated when headed at Listowel and doesn't look the most reliable type.
