Verdict

Gra Geal Mo Chroi won this in 2011 and Mighty Whitey scored a year ago but neither is expected to follow up as AUDEN looks to have been put in with a fair claiming weight. A winner at Newmarket for Godolphin last year, he ran a fine race in a tough Cork handicap on Sunday behind Morning With Ivan and will find this less taxing. Headford Lady completed a double in 2010 but hasn't won since. She's competed at a much higher level and looks the obvious threat. Valley Queen scored at Windsor for Mark Usher last year and has been put in with a realistic weight.
