Verdict

He's Got Rhythm won this in 2010 but, though successful already three times this year, he's looking high in the weights as a result. Knights Templar was a head behind Footprint at Galway conceding 2lb so should just about be up to reversing the form on these terms though the pair of them are up against some progressive three-year-olds. LUCKY KITTEN has now won twice over a mile on soft ground and won't have any problems dropping in trip. He's just 4lb higher than his last success at Galway and a first-time visor can help him gain victory number three. Target Acquired has already achieved that number of successes and though behind the selection at Gowran he's improved so much that it should be much closer this time. Harpist is another from the younger generation with a real chance as she appeared to find 6f too short at Cork while Brown Butterfly could prove best of the older horses, though she's taking quite a drop in trip.
