Verdict

BRADY'S HILL showed a bit of improvement at Gowran then progressed further with an all-the-way victory at Listowel earlier this month. A 7lb rise looks manageable and he can continue his progress through the ranks and take this. Killourney Empress is another improver though she appeared to find dropping back to a mile in her favour last time when beaten a short-head by Busalla at Listowel. Only Exception is generally thereabouts but has yet to win a race in 11 starts though she's well enough treated to get involved. Danequest has won once in 31 starts, including over hurdles, but has dropped to a fair mark as a consequence and shouldn't be dismissed.
