Verdict

Ealian Aibrean has been very disappointing since her opening two runs and is difficult to side with though the opposition doesn't look particularly strong. However, CAPTAIN MOONLITE has shown enough ability to get onto the score-sheet for the first time and Billy Lee is having an inspired spell in the saddle. Princess Aloof finished just in front of Ealain Aibrean with Crafty Codger just behind at Fairyhouse last week and both have much more scope than Dermot Weld's filly. Andy Oliver won this last year so Thrilled To Bits, who has run in two Listed contests, is probably the main threat dropping markedly in grade.
