Verdict

Jim Bolger had plenty of entries in this at the early stage and relies on SOMETHING GRACEFUL. She appeared to find a bit of improvement to land a Leopardstown maiden last time and though beaten off this mark previously in a handicap can make further progress and take this. Aegean Sky has shown improved form since stepping up to 1m4f and appeared to need every yard of that trip when scoring at Galway so it's a surprise to see her dropping back. Zariyna is improving at a rate of knots and looks a big threat after she completed a double by beating today's rival Cheval Rouge at Leopardstown. A 5lb rise isn't excessive and she looks a big threat but the handicapper may now have got to Beach Of Falesa, who is 10lb higher than for her last victory at Killarney.
