Verdict

CONNACHT COUNCIL was only headed close home at Navan earlier this month. This longer trip clearly suits and, as he should again beat eighth Frozen North, a first victory looks on the cards today. Windsor Queen was noted staying on late over a mile at Gowran last month so might appreciate the extra quarter-mile and she's preferred to Lady Giselle, who was beaten a long way at the same track last time despite finishing third. Janna's Jingle has been placed in four of her seven starts but looks a filly without a trip.
