Verdict

Ellie Mia has gradually improved and beat a big field at Roscommon though she's only raced on ground with plenty of give. QUEEN ALPHABET had done well in bumpers before beating subsequent winner Erlkonig in good style at Kilbeggan. She stepped up in trip and grade on the same track a couple of weeks later and couldn't handle Pink Hat but this should prove within her capabilities. Annagh Haven has never won in eleven starts but she's still likely to prove best of the remainder.
