Verdict

Shane Shortall has been one of the apprentice finds of the season and his claim will help Woodsophiesmile, who is still 9lb higher than when scoring at the Curragh in May. The penny has finally dropped with CALORIE and she was finishing in the frame for the fourth time in as many starts at Cork earlier this month. All going comes alike to Johnny Murtagh's filly and she could be the pick of the weights today ahead of Wexford winner Empress Toorah and Truly Delightful, though the latter will appreciate the return to 1m2f after finishing fourth at Galway and holds Pretty Angel on the form book. Willowing has been out of sorts lately.
