Verdict

Seefood started off brilliantly over hurdles but showed nothing in much higher grade later and has looked moderate over fences. It's a surprise to find GLENS MELODY running here as she ended the last campaign landing a Grade 1 on heavy ground here in April, her seventh victory in ten starts. She'll be running in better class later and should land this on the way. King Shabra found some improvement to finish runner-up to Rule The World at Naas and has to be respected but Dushybeag has been chasing and his overall form over timber leaves him with something to find.
