Verdict

The veteran Muirhead has always performed at a very high level and has won when fresh in the past so the lack of a recent run may not be too much of a problem. Noble Prince has a Listed penalty to carry for his victory over Realt Dubh at Thurles in November but he was only narrowly beaten in a Cork Grade 3 in April. Pageboy is progressing nicely and enjoyed the fast conditions at Fairyhouse so would be well suited if the ground dried out. Cailin Annamh started a short-priced favourite in that latter race and was just behind the winner when crashing out at the second last. She made amends at Limerick and looks a nice prospect. Dushybeag, who finished four lengths back in third, looks held and would be better with some rain. LAMBRO is an experienced handicapper with several strong efforts to his credit and he looked on the way back to form at Killarney last time so gets the nod to gain his first success since scoring here two years ago. Away We Go is another tough handicapper, though he's better over further.
