Verdict

Donnas Palm is the class-act here but a Grade 2 penalty for scoring over 2m1f here and an absence since March may prove too much at this stage of the campaign and he's overlooked in favour of OUR VICTORIA. Colin Bowe's mare jumps well and stays much further than this but testing ground will make this a slog and though scoring only once over fences she's ran in some decent races without disgracing herself. Imperial Shabra wasn't far behind Donnas Palm in that Grade 2 event and though no better off he has a fitness advantage having beaten Laganbank at Galway earlier this month.
